Description of .
works The artist loves the sea, that links up the sky and so he wants to
emphasize the blending of reality and trascendence. In this painting the
white sails, on the blue sea, catch the eyes, and the small town, on the
background,expresses the endless tie between the earth and the sea.
COMMENTS The two works give us a sense of peaceful and quiet. The sails seem the wings
of birds on the sea. The pictures are like dreams or fairy images.
