When you're talking about painters who get the Jalopnik Stamp-O-Approval™, the Two Roberts come to mind immediately. You got your Robert Williams, of course, and then you got your Robert Bechtle... and what more could you need? I've got a print of Alameda Gran Torino hanging on my living-room wall, and it serves as inspiration every time I head out the door on a DOTS photo expedition (especially when I see a car like today's '65 Comet). I've gathered up a few of Bechtle's many car-themed paintings for our enjoyment on this fine Tuesday. [The New Yorker, SFMOMA]
