Matthew Rudman reviews Wayne Thiebaud: 1962 to 2017 at White Cube Mason’s Yard, London, on view through July 2, 2017.

Rudman writes: "What this exhibition makes clear is not simply Thiebaud’s longevity, with works on show dating from 1962 to 2017, but the sustained quality, experimentation and sense of play in his output ... Portraits from the 60s hang next to still lifes and landscapes from 2017. Noting the dates of these works is a constant surprise – one gets the sense of an artist in motion, for ever revisiting his favourite subjects with little in tow aside from his own extraordinary interior world of light and colour."
