The Cliff House

This dramatic coastal setting depicts a dilapidated building perched precipitously between the road and a rocky cliff overlooking shore breakers. It was a familiar site for sightseers and surfers along the Pacific Coast Highway I in the 50’s and 60’s. The building was a restaurant for years and then I believe it burnt down and all evidence has vanished. I want to call it “The Cliff House”, but I can’t remember the exact name. Perhaps it will jog someone’s memory and they will comment.

These painting document a period when the PCH was a twisting two-laner that took you to the sand dune’s and Point Magu. Dick painted these two in the late sixties showing a diversity of color spectrum that the ocean atmosphere can offer.
