Footnotes

  • Painted in 1897.

    A disarmingly beautiful painting, full of light and joie de vivre, this tranquil seashore scene is one of Hantzis's finest and most accomplished works. Distinguished by crisp design, colour sensitivity, compositional balance (note how the low horizon that gives full value to the spaciousness of the sky is punctuated by the vertical accent of the standing boy) and great skill in rendering groups of people integrated in their natural surroundings, this fascinating image of beached boats and fishermen at work chants the stories of everyday life on the Greek seacoast.

    The son of a shipowner and an eminent exponent of the Munich school, though he never studied at the Bavarian capital's Academy of Fine Arts, Hantzis was an exceptional talent, often rivalling or even surpassing his teacher C. Volanakis.
