Another weekend, another Ralph Hulett. This time it's an oil of downtown Los Angeles near Olvera Street.

This specimen was painted in the mid-sixties, when artist Hulett was doing a lot of different studies of L.A. (Bunker Hill paintings here and here.)

The scene here is old Los Angeles Square near Olvera Street. Union Station would be a block or two away, and L.A.'s City Hall (seen on the right side of the street) isn't in that precise location, I don't think. Mr. Hulett had the habit of putting the landmark in a lot of his L.A. paintings for like, reference.
