Subway by Richard Schlecht

This is a spectacular watercolor by Washington DC artist Richard Schlecht. It depicts the interior of a subway car (the Metro?). The colors are vivid and the composition is driven by a strong linear perspective that draws the viewer into the car. It seems to draw on the technique mise en abyme where the image seems to repeat recursively into the vanishing point. It is an excellent piece. It is in excellent condition that is not archivally framed and matted. It is signed in the lower right.
Schlecht was born in Texas and studied art at the University of Denver before moving to the east coast. He worked as an artist and illustrator in Washington, D.C. and lives in Annapolis.
