Subject matter
In the mid 1960s, Diebenkorn drew/printed several similar scenes that depicted a table and chair, sometimes with a figure sitting in a chair at a table. In 1964, Diebenkorn received a Cultural Exchange Grant from the U.S. State Department that allowed him to visit the Soviet Union; Diebenkorn was influenced by Henri Matisse's paintings during this visit, although he was first exposed to his work at a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1952. Diebenkorn was known for his figurative works, and was one of the founding members of the Bay Area Figurative Movement. 1963-1964 is characterized by the artist's lyrical figurative drawings; 1965 was the start of the artist's late figurative works.
