Today on Modern Art Notes: I review “Richard Diebenkorn: The Ocean Park Series” at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. The exhibition was co-organized by the Orange County Museum of Art.
I rave about the show and find that it confirms that Diebenkorn’s Ocean Park paintings are the apex of 20th-century abstract painting.
