Richard Diebenkorn was a Portland-born American painter, who moved from being influenced by Edward Hopper, into abstract expressionist, color-field style painting, and from there created a new form of figurative painting (spearheading the so-called Bay Area Figurative Movement…)

"Throughout his career, Diebenkorn grappled with issues of abstraction versus representation in his work. In two bodies of work in abstraction — the "Berkeley" series from early in his career and the famous "Ocean Park" series from the late 1960s — the artist looked to his environment for inspiration. His bold colors and strong compositions revealed highly metaphorical spatial and chromatic explorations." (Web caption from Norton Simon Museum site)
