An Eight-Year-Old at Sea




The representation of art is much more powerful when it speaks of a verism that language cannot adequately capture. Catching a fish on the Mediterranean. It was a good day. The fish was big. The painter recreated the event months after.

A much loved piece.

I have reacted like this to certain kinds of art before.

Where did you procure it? I'd like to know more about the context, too.
