This hand-signed etching and aquatint by Wayne Thiebaud rarely comes to auction. Printed in delicate tones of blue, Thiebaud illustrates shoes on display in a store's window. Like his serialized compositions of pies, cakes, and other confections, Thiebaud arranges the shoes neatly in two rows that mirror each other in a distinctly 20th century interpretation of the still life. The storefront stands in for the still life's traditional domestic setting, and consumer goods replace the flowers and fruit. Although arrangement is meditative like a still life, one could easily imagine the shoes passing by as if on a conveyor belt.
