Description

The House on Hydra was painted in the period 1929 - 1930. In this work, the water, the sky, and the mass of the mountain which surround the building are mere pretexts for the study of the atmospheric translucency and of the reflections - preoccupations which predominate in the artist's work. The fisherman's house, bathed in light, dominates the centre of the composition, while a differentiated use of colour distinguishes it from the rest of the landscape, which serves the perspective rendering.
