PROV. Priv. coll, Thessaloniki
One of the most beautiful and masterful works/finds from the “Athenian Balconies” series that Ghika favored and focused on repeatedly. The simplicity and sharpness of his design, his ability to compose and his aptitude for sweetly and musically drawing structures the space into an iconic, magical reality straight out of a fairytale; entirely his own, this achieves a poetic interpretation of space. The harmony in the relationship between the shapes dominates the thus liberated composition. He masterfully combines the forms of the peculiar anthem in front of the curtain upon which a cool Mediterranean breeze blows lightly and attractively, transforming the landscape into a theatrical setting, a dream state!
