Robert Bechtle

There's a Robert Bechtle retrospective at the The Modern that really took me by surprise. You know, I certainly knew it had to be better than that Dan Flavin crap, but I didn't expect to get really sucked in. The exhibit is comprehensive and organized quite well. It was organized by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and its only other stop is here in Fort Worth. Bechtle is a Photorealist painter. His paintings are recreations of photographs that he takes. I really like them. And as stunning and cool as his paintings are, I think I might like his charcoals best. More on Bechtle @ Artnet, TFAO, and ArtScene.
