This beautifully presented book features over 120 paintings by Cecil Rice and is a celebration of this artist's passion for light, colour and atmosphere. Sunlight seems to radiate from virtually every image illuminating the artist's vision and skill. Venice has provided a rich source for much of his work. For more than two decades, his love for the city has resulted in truly stunning watercolours that are applauded by critics and collectors alike. Inspired by the wonderful oils and watercolours of Venice by Turner, excitement and fascination with painting this wonderful city still remain. Florence, Rome, Tuscany, Tunisia and the Nile reflect Cecil's love of travel and discovery seeking and recording the warm allure of Southern Europe and North Africa. In contrast, the stark light of the north is explored along the canals of Amsterdam, the banks of the Thames in London, as well as the shorelines of Southern England. Each gives rise to a distinctive impression in a totally recognisable style.
This copy is in very good condition. There is a little light creasing to the wrapper's edges but it has not been price-clipped.
