🔳Richard Diebenkorn (April 22, 1922 – March 30, 1993) was an American painter.

His early work is associated with abstract expressionism and the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 1960s.

Inspired by the work of Henri Matisse, Diebenkorn drew on his bright Californian surroundings to create images defined by planes of carefully chosen colors.

After a decade and a half of painting figuratively, in 1967, Diebenkorn returned to abstraction, with a new geometric style.
