April 22, 2022 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of Richard Diebenkorn (1922–1993). In memory of the artist, Crown Point Press presents a special exhibition featuring four working proofs of his most celebrated print, Green. The large aquatint was created in the Crown Point studio by Richard Diebenkorn in 1985. The proofs provide an intimate look at Diebenkorn’s process of developing the image, drawing the viewer into a visual history of the print’s creation.
Crown Point Press is among a group of participating institutions celebrating Richard Diebenkorn’s centennial. They include, at the time of this writing, the Anderson Collection at Stanford University; the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford; the Crocker Art Museum, Sacramento; the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco; the Oakland Museum of California; the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; the San José Museum of Art; and the University of California, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
