Overview

In 1981, Schjeldahl wrote, "[Robert] Bechtle's realism is symbolically vibrant. It makes a symbolic connection between the completely seen and the completely known." Using Bechtle's photorealist paintings as a starting point, Schjeldahl explores the narrative aspect of painting and its peculiar interplay with photography.
