Diebenkorn's first one-person exhibition was held at the California Palace of the Legion of Honor in 1948, which was a huge honor for a young a painter.

Diebenkorn eventually moved to Berkeley in late 1955 and continued working in a highly abstracted style.

His early work is associated with abstract expressionism and the Bay Area Figurative Movement of the 1950s and 1960s

He began to work in a "representational" mode, painting and drawing landscapes, figure studies and still lifes.

With fellow artists David Park, Elmer Bischoff and later Frank Lobdell, he regularly worked on figure drawing from models;

One of his largest bodies of work comprises exhaustively experimental figure drawings.

In 1980 and 1981, Diebenkorn temporarily changed direction, producing a rather eccentric group of works on paper known as the "Clubs and Spades" drawings.

They were, at least in part, inspired by the artist's lifelong interest in heraldic imagery, and their explorations of form would reappear in modified form at the very end of his life.

In doing so, he definitively ended his figurative approach, to invent a unique abstract language he would develop until 1988.

In the spring of 1988, the couple moved from Santa Monica to Healdsburg, California, to a rural home near the Russian River, overlooking vineyards and scrub-oak hillsides.

In his Healdsburg studio he worked in mostly small scale, producing some of the most gem-like, quirkily decorative, and perfectly executed, works of his life.
