A very beautiful refreshing painting with a theme that Ghika dealt with repeatedly: the Athenian balconies. Simple crisp designs effortlessly reveal his synthetic aptitude and drawing skill. Space is interpreted poetically, structured into his own sweet, musical and fairy tale depiction of reality. He masterfully assembles the lines of the peculiar railing, the curtain’s folds blowing lightly and attractively in the cool Mediterranean breeze so that it transforms the composition into a theatrical setting of a dream state. He is not content with superficial things. He penetrates deep, uncovering the rhythm of the lines and avoids pointless details.
