100 Not So Famous Views of L.A.
by Barbara A. Thomason
For four years, artist Barbara A. Thomason roamed her beloved Los Angeles, seeking the vistas, nooks, bridges, signs, streets, and landmarks that most captivated her. Inspired by Hiroshige's acclaimed print series One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, this grand project resulted in the one hundred paintings reproduced within. Intimate, often recognizable and sometimes unexpected, Thomason's paintings capture the vibrant L.A., the quirky L.A., the beautiful L.A. - the essential L.A.
