Large-Scale Watercolor of the Greek Island of Ios, 1975

By Susan Shatter

United States, 1970s
Painted by the American artist Susan Shatter on the Greek island of Ios in 1975, this stunning watercolor depicts in sandy earth tones the hilly interior with a white-washed village settlement to one side. This work measures an impressive 49" x 156". No other medium has watercolor's blend of luminosity and directness, and none requires so sure and responsive a touch. With formidable skill, Shatter maintains in this painting a spontaneous, almost emotional effect even at this immense scale.

Good. Minor scratches to frame and Plexiglas.
