Wayne Thiebaud’s Five Rows of Sunglasses epitomizes summer in DC. Although Thiebaud’s work is described as realist, this work showcases the artist’s interest in commercial American icons. Part of The Phillips Collection’s permanent holdings in Washington, DC - one of our favorite art institutions in America and only a short drive from Sofitel Washington DC.
