Fremont with Two Girls200646 1/2 x 45 in. acrylic on canvas
DescriptionContemporary photorealist painter Davis Cone's Fremont with Two Girls (2006) depicts the historic Fremont Theater in San Luis Obispo, California, which opened in 1942 - just before the U.S. entered World War II. Cone presents a romanticized view, but not a nostalgic one, as the Fremont Theater remains in operation, a vital part of its community. Cone’s work preserves and celebrates the persistent landmarks of early 20th century American life in sharp detail.
