Oil on canvas
Among the numerous works which Ithakisios produced when he was living on Olympus are On the Peaks of Olympus and Gorge on Olympus, which show the intense bond he felt with nature. The great beauty of the mountain landscape, with the trees belaboured by the harsh climate, the cliffs and the rocks, is depicted in compositions which are marked by a realistic approach. Emphasis is given to accuracy of design, which demonstrates the immediacy of the observation, but without any lack of an emotional approach to nature, a certain romantic mood, denoted by soft lyrical colours.
