    One the most important Ukrainian artists of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Mikhail Berkos is mostly known for spectacular landscapes which glorified the authentic beauty of his own country Ukraine. However, an important place in the artist's oeuvre belongs to a body of work created during Berkos' travels overseas, such as France, Finland and Italy.

    The present View of Marina Piccola was most certainly inspired by Berkos' visit to Capri in 1899. The immaculate beauty of Capri's southern coast is captured by the artist with remarkable skill and precision. The delightful intimacy of one of Capri's smallest bays is set against the grandiosity of the island's rocky coast, while the harmonic bright palette of the painting creates a breathtaking image of the abundant Italian coastal nature.
