Alpine Lake – G. Bonavita, 1959
65 cm x 95 cm (measurements refer only to the canvas) – oil on cardboard – 1959
Wildflowers and trees with light green buds, a thin path that leads to the shore of the lake, with crystal still waters painted by the reflection of the mountains streaked by the last snow.
The painter, through the skilful use of lights and colors, heats and cools, lights up and dims, revives and desaturates, to obtain, overall, that perfectly clear air, the electric atmosphere typical of spring days that are immersed in the first warmth of the sun.
The perfect complement to this painting is an antique fir wood frame, handmade by our craftsmen.
