Sacramento artist Wayne Thiebaud and his wife, Betty Jean, donated some of his hand-worked prints, created between 1964 and 2008, to the Richard L. Nelson Gallery at the University of California, Davis, on Tuesday.

Thiebaud, a world-renowned painter whose luscious-looking dessert images are among his most recognized works, has taught at the university since 1960.

The couple's gift celebrates the school's centennial and brings to 114 the number of Thiebaud works in the university's permanent fine arts collection. The latest donation is valued at $860,000, according to campus officials.

The public will be able to view the 20 etchings, aquatints, linocuts and lithographs during an exhibition scheduled to open in January 2010.
