This unique fine work/recent discovery by the Alexandrian artist captures the spiritual essence summarizing his belief that in a work of art “the external world has been conquered by the internal’’. In the rendering of the soul of the landscape the artist’s notes on his notebooks become evident:«The view alone does not reveal the spirit and soul contained within things. The joy of the spirit exists when matter obeys the spirit». He depicts the buildings with variations of shading and shapes the volumes aiming to pierce the visible. This beautiful rare work encapsulates the concept that the great artist calls ” philocalia”, (love of beauty), in which the “divine breath” of art shapes and elevates the spirit!
