One of the focal paintings for this exhibit is 68 Cadillac by Robert Bechtle, an American painter from San Francisco who translates everyday American life into iconic paintings.
During the late 1960s, an artistic movement was taking shape. Individual artists began working with photography in order to freeze an image and then systematically transfer it to canvas. The forefront of this movement was artist Howard Kanovitz’s solo New York show in 1966. However, it wasn’t until the 1970s
