WASSENAAR, Netherlands––Museum Voorlinden unveiled its custom edition of porcelain tableware at its Bakery Case Pop Up celebrating American painter Wayne Thiebaud (1920). Inspired by the artist’s color palette and exploration of light in his subjects, museum guests can enjoy “Thiebaud-cakes” in real life.
Famous for his mouthwatering depictions of cakes, ice creams and hot dogs, Thiebaud has placed the American everyday life at the core of his artistic practice. The career of the influential master spans an impressive seventy years and counting. Now aged 97, he has still not put down the brush.Museum Voorlinden
The collection coincided with the museum’s first ever European retrospective of around 60 of the artist’s works from spanning from 1961 to 2018.
