Wayne Thiebaud By: Jacob lucas B Nov. 26, 2016

Born: November 15, 1920 in Mesa, New Mexico and is still alive

Wayne Thiebaud is most well known for his contributions to the pop art movement of the 50s and 60s

Three Machines (1963) (30x36 1/2in) is in the De Young Museum, San Francisco
Large Sucker (1971) (24x22in) is in Leanne Hull Fine Arts Inventory Catalog
Eight Lipsticks (1988) (14x12in) in Art Silicon Valley, San Francisco
Three Strawberry Shakes (1964) (26x22in) in possession of the artist
Display Cakes (1963) (28x38in) in SFMOMA, San Francisco

In the picture there are: 3 red candy dispensers and the white counter on which they lie. There's a great variation of color in the machines themselves with the gum balls. The texture is that of the brush strokes the artist made when creating it. This gives us the feeling of being a kid and focusing only on the candy in Machines and being amazed by it. You can tell it was created during the pop art movement because of its simplicity and vibrant colors. I would purchase this because I like the color in it and how the natural brushstrokes give it a natural feel.
