Yesterday, the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation and Yale University Press announced the release date of the long-awaited collection, “Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné.” The four-volume, 2,000-page collection of the artist’s sketches, drawings, paintings, and sculptural objects will be available this fall, on October 18.

The comprehensive catalogue has been 20 years in the making, first put into motion by the Diebenkorn family not long after the artist’s death in 1993, and partly in response to a series of unauthenticated Diebenkorn drawings that appeared in the market around that time.

It is co-edited by Jane Livingston, a former curator of 20th-century Art at LACMA and Associate Director and Chief Curator at the Corcoran Gallery, and Andrea Liguori, Managing Director of the Richard Diebenkorn Foundation.

Featuring nearly 5000 of the artist works, and essays from such scholars as  John Elderfield, Chief Curator Emeritus of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA, “Richard Diebenkorn: The Catalogue Raisonné” comes with a price tag of $400.00.
