Impressionistic Seascape, Venice (1800's)


Impressionistic Seascape, Venice

Oil on Canvas: 12" x 21"
Catalog# CLEY-001

Late 1800's

Two fishing boats meet on azure blue waters against a horizon of Venice and sailboats off in the distance. The two fishing boats are meager and reveal many repairs by multi-colored patches and mended sails.

The composition is simple, yet the diagonals from the sails and posts protruding from the waters, and the bright, contrasting palette offer depth to this two-dimensional seascape. Impressionistically executed, Cleyten presents a bright, yet humble Venetian view.
