Gift of Dimitrios D. Tsamis
Landscape at Cassis, the village which became the artist's favourite holiday destination in the South of France, draws attention to his capabilities in carving on transverse wood. The work is printed with light ochre and black. This was a landscape which particularly claimed Galanis's attention in the 1920s, either as a work of painting, or as an engraving. Galanis drew mainly the landscape around the village, also giving prominence to the surrounding hills. In this particular composition, the marked lineation which is created by the engraving of the transverse wood creates dynamic parallel lines which define the levels of the hills, as well as the atmosphere.
