Suntory Niseiten 10F (53 x 45.5cm) Written by Kimiyoshi Nishimura


This painting is a landscape painting that captures the beauty of the cityscape of Santorini and the scenery on a sunny day. It expresses the natural beauty and bright atmosphere unique to the Aegean Sea.

Santorini's buildings are beautiful white, sometimes cast in shadow, and vividly painted under clear skies. The contrast between the white cityscape and the deep blue of the Aegean Sea catches the viewer's attention.

This work beautifully captures the bright atmosphere of the Mediterranean Sea and the charm of nature using the rich texture unique to oil painting.
