Cherry pies, bacon and eggs, gumball machines, lollipops, frosted cakes, meringues, ice cream, and olives—these are just some of the tasty motifs waiting to be discovered in Wayne Thiebaud’s mouth-watering “Delights” portfolio. Published as a limited edition book in 1965, the “Delights” portfolio contains seventeen etchings with aquatint and drypoint that capture the Pop artist’s favorite snacks as black-and-white line drawings. “There’s nothing really that I’ve ever found in other lines that is like an etched line—its fidelity, the richness of it, the density. You just don’t get that any other way,” Thiebaud once said of etchings, his preferred print technique. With only 100 copies of each print in circulation, complete “Delights” portfolios rarely come to market—however, collectors can still snap up loose examples from the series when they surface in the secondary market, putting them in the company of major museums like New York’s MoMA and Whitney Museum of American Art.
