Diebenkorn at the Royal Academy

Richard Diebenkorn illuminates the RA with Californian sunshine, or was it just because I was there last week on the first sunny day we have had all year?

It is a joyful and uplifting survey of his work and reminded me of all the things I miss about the Bay area, notably the colours and light. 

If you like your landscape abstracted, contemplate away, but Diebenkorn was also a gifted portraitist.

It’s a relatively small show, but there is much to enjoy if you take your time and meditate on it awhile - a serene break from the bustle of Piccadilly
