Frank Lobdell: the Tamarind Prints
A series of prints created by Frank Lobdell during his fellowship at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in 1966. Although primarily known as a painter, Lobdell’s work also included lithographs, etchings and monoprints. Lobdell used his time at Tamarind to develop his composition for a large painting (Summer 1967) which was recently acquired by the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Lobdell studied and taught at the California School of Fine Arts (now San Francisco Art Institute) alongside Richard Diebenkorn and Elmer Bischoff and later taught at Stanford University until his retirement in 1991.
