Richard Hass is a painter and printmaker best known for his large scale architectural murals that make use of trompe l’oeil illusions to drastically alter the facades of buildings across the United States. He has been called the great architectural muralist of our time. This is an example of his smaller-scale painting projects that faithfully record classic American buildings and streetscapes. He has a strong understanding of architecture, and his paintings breathe a new life into the chosen building or view.
