Notes

Summary:
The painting lives through the power of great contrasts: the luminous, richly broken field of oranges, and greens against the blue sea; the modeled wavy mountains, convex, against the filmy, substanceless sky. The broad strata of the landscape are interlocked pairs, forming larger rectangular zones which become more cohesive still through the horizontals in the diagonal fields and the sloping forms in the horizontal. An ever-active touch, responding to the lie or swerve or rise of objects, unites this extended world from point to point. Nothing is perfectly still; the dark water has its pulsations and nuanced mood, and the pure sky, a delicate quivering of ethereal tones.
