Wayne Thiebaud’s painting titled “Ripley Street Ridge” was bought for $1,022,500 during Christie’s Post-War And Contemporary Art auction in New York on May 14. I for one love this painting a lot. As the lot note describes it well, Thiebaud captures something very uniquely Californian so well on this painting. And it’s more than the obvious, the landscape and lights.
