Painting of naked ladies on a rock, oil on multiplex, signed Amporo, Spain, 2022
By now I assume that you are aware that I have built a friendship with an artist in Spain. Every six weeks I travel to Spain for salvage hunting and every six week I also pay a visit to my friend the artist and buy new paintings, small and large. His English is improving but not yet fluent, my Spanish is non existent, still. So every time it is a (nice) surprise what he has made for me.
Like these ladies, a new theme in the collection. He thought he was entitled to try his hand at a more impressionistic style. And yes, I think he is allowed and he succeeded.
It reminds me a bit of that scene in the book Captain Correlli's Mandoline, where he is swimming in the sea and she is watching him from a rock.
Because if you take a closer look at the painting, you will see that these ladies are not sitting there on that rock being pretty by accident. There are some men splashing about in the water. So on the one hand, they ladies are the view, on the other hand, the ladies themselves are enjoying a nice view themselves. Very meta.
