‘… early Bay Area notables — Elmer Bischoff, Joan Brown, William “Theophilius” Brown, Richard Diebenkorn, Nathan Oliveira and Paul Wonner … If there is one real lesson that Bay Area Figuration has taught American painters over time, it is that nothing should stop a painter from playing the range between painterly figuration and painterly abstraction.’ (John Seed, Professor of Art and Art History, Mt.
