Robert Bechtle Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away

Robert Bechtle Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Robert Bechtle.

Aw man. Painter Robert Bechtle died yesterday. He was such a part of how I saw the Bay Area and an influence on my photography. Spend a little time with his work. The photo realism is the gimmick, his magic was the conceptual detail—the idea—of a place.

We are saddened by the passing of #CCArts alum and former faculty member Robert Bechtle. His photorealist paintings depicting everyday life can be found in @SFMOMA and @whitneymuseum collections. Relive his work in @SamWhitingSF‘s story for @SFC_Datebook:

We are saddened to learn about the passing of artist Robert Bechtle (1932-2020), one of the founding members of the Photorealism movement.

Bechtle lived nearly all his life in the San Francisco Bay Area and his art is centered on scenes from everyday local life.

RIP Robert Bechtle, one of my favorite painters. His paintings rewarded sustained attention. I would sometimes spend 20-30 minutes with them in museums. A long time for a static art object! No one ever quiet nailed the piercing California light like Robert Bechtle. RIP.

’61 Pontiac, 1968–1969 by Robert Bechtle. Bob died this morning at 5:27. We have lost a major figure of American art, and a Bay Area hero.

RIP Robert Bechtle, 88, who conjured sun-drenched daily life with a tender precision. Pristine cars promising freedom. Sturdy new homes. People at their best. His paintings are bracingly still—and full. The shadows may be getting long, but night is still a long way off.


Saddened by the passing of Robert Bechtle. So many great people leaving us this week. First RBG and now one of our favorite painters. Here’s a picture to treasure what is lost.

More than the photorealism of his work, I’ve always been struck by the photograph-ness of it. His eye was drawn to the same sort of things that fascinated Stephen Shore, for instance, and the colour isn’t that of life but the colour of slide film.

When I was a kid Robert Bechtle made a huge impression on me. I’d never seen art in a gallery – respectable! parent approved! – of people and places I could relate to. Another pillar of art in SF leaves our world, and we are poorer for it

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
