  • Robert Bechtle

    Anglim Gilbert Gallery

    Robert Bechtle’s Photorealistic paintings from the late ’60s quickly became classics of the genre, taking the banal icons of suburbia—American cars parked in the sloping sunbaked driveways of flat-fronted tract homes—as their subject. Bechtle has clung to the practice and theme ever since, working exclusively from daylight snapshots as the source for his images of ordinary afternoons in California neighborhoods. Even so, the artist has repeatedly burrowed in and mastered technical challenges while infusing his paintings and drawings with subtle stylistic innovations.
