A symphony of diagonal lines and subtle variations of light and tones, this work was made by Dutch artist Wim Schuhmacher, who came to be known as the ‘master of grey’.
Schuhmacher painted this view of San Gimignano on one of his many trips to Italy. His bird's-eye view shows the town from the height of the hill further inland. Revealing slight traces of Schuhmacher’s background in Cubism, San Gimignano strikes a curious balance between real and imaginary.
