18. Bay Area Hills

Rinaldo Cuneo | oil on canvas in recessed lunettes | each 9 feet by 54 inches This pair of canvasses depicts the rich farmlands of the Santa Clara Valley and the rounded brownish hills of the East Bay. The artist has massed blossoming trees, vineyards, a man walking with a hoe—all in tones of grey, brown, and subtle green. In the twin painting a man driving a tractor occupies a foreground spot, set against planted green areas, brown fields, small farms and buildings, large hills looming almost to the top of the canvas, and grey skies.
