"end up talking about Richard Diebenkorn for half an hour"

Another Abstract Expressionist, Richard Diebenkorn (1922-1993) was also part of the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 1960s - a group of artists from the San Francisco Bay Area who preferred the figurative painting style to the Abstract Expressionist Movement as it was.
