See: New print by Robert Bechtle: The Sunset District

After nine months in NYC, I’m really missing California. So when this image popped up in my inbox, it was perfect. Robert Bechtle—whose station wagon painting in the SFMOMA collection impressed me as a young artist—has updated the suburban blandness with a new print from Crown Point Press. Strong California sunlight on immaculate, impersonal Sunset district houses. So familiar, yet so far off in the outer avenues.
