Diebenkorn “Seated Woman” Series

In 1964 a number of posters were made for an exhibition that Richard Diebenkorn was to have at Stanford. Later, the artist used leftover copies of the poster as a starting point for a small series of works that were both representational and abstract. See examples below.
