GIALLINAS Angelos (1857-1939) “Greengrocer`s in Corfu”

The `Greengrocer`s in Corfu` presents a scene from everyday life in the painter`s birthplace of Corfu, and is simply a pretext to depict yet another view of the town. It is painted with the artist`s usual sensibility. Free of the photographic representation and romantic realism of the travelers, writers and painters, who visited Greece in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, this picture brings to light the artist`s lived experiences, which he expresses in lyrical color and meticulous brushwork.
