Evelyn Kane – Bunker Hill Los Angeles – Oil On Canvas 1955

Regular price $1,200.00

Mid-century modernist at play: and what better subject than a doomed soon-to-be-demolished Victorian on Bunker Hill? This painting is just so much fun.

In 1966, The Los Angeles Times wrote of Bunker Hill: “Nowhere else in Los Angeles was the architecture so ornate. The mansions were wooden-frame Victorian with Gothic gingerbread touches applied with a heavy hand to simulate masonry.”

Game on.  Art 20 x 24, Framed 24 x 28.25.
