Print of the Week – Etchings by Robert Bechtle

I stumbled upon some etchings by Robert Bechtle last week, and was instantly drawn to them. They are so classically “California,” and really reflect the view I have of Southern California, even though they were made 45 years ago. I just passed my 2 year anniversary of moving to LA, so I find these prints to be a lovely reminder of the strange charm of California.

The first print above is titled “Alameda Camaro,” the second, “Burbank Street, Alameda.” Both are hard ground etchings from 1967.
