George Tzannes
Landscape with Olive Tree - Black and White Landscape of Greek Island

2017

$3,100

About

George Tzannes's Landscape with Olive Tree is a 22 x 24 inches black and white chalk painting on canvas representing a Greek landscape. Olive trees populate the landscape. Tzannes is an American painter of Greek origins. In his twenties he visited Kythera, the Greek island of his father's birth. Since that time, the island has become the major reference of his creativity. The choice of using black and white to represent this landscape gives the mighty hundred-years old olive trees a monumental presence. The viewer is drawn into the timeless, spiritual quality of the Greek landscape. Despite the absence of color, Tzannes' mastery of drawing creates a tangible effect of the Greek light that imbues everything. The use of chalk and charcoal gives the image a perception of softness yet maintaining a close attention to details. Though figurative, this drawing transcend a literal depiction of reality. The timeless quality of this black and white landscape, its clarity and depth have a parallel in the photographic images by Ansel Adams.
