The Capri Shore

Author: Stabrowski Kazimierz, 1869 - 1929

Created: 1900s–1910s.

Material / technique: paper, pastel.

Dimensions:  48x66 cm.

Signature:  K. Stabrowski (signature in the bottom-right corner of the painting).

The light green composition depicts a stretch of water at a stony shore illuminated by the sun. K. Stabrowski has studied nature, lighting, and water reflections to a great extent, so he puts his knowledge and skill into practice by creating an impressionistic and vibrant visual of transparent water in motion. The bed of the waters is covered in small rocks. The impression of the depths of the waters is created in the top left corner of the composition using full blue strokes. The centre of the waters gracefully reflects the sunshine. At the top-right corner, one can see the source of intense sunlight, symbolising the transcendent depths of knowledge.
