Richard Diebenkorn entered Stanford in 1940, where he would receive his first formal art training. One of Diebenkorn’s earliest works is a Hopper-like cityscape from 1943 called Palo Alto Circle. Diebenkorn started painting abstract work in the late 1940s, but returned to representational painting after moving to Berkeley in the 1950s, becoming a key player and teacher in the Bay Area Figurative Movement.
