Thiebaud is most famous for his paintings of food! He paints cakes, gumballs, pies, cupcakes, ice cream, candy, and more! He usually paints from memory. His paintings are visual memories of the food served at the many family gatherings he went to as a kid, from memories of diners that he worked in as an adult, or delis and bakeries he visited.
Thiebaud went to college at the University of California, Sacramento, and then became a professor!
