„Cape Kaliakra”

Kimon LOGHI (1871–1952)

Like other Romanian landscape painters, Kimon Loghi showed a special interest in the Silver Coast, as the coast of the Quadrilater was called by Queen Maria, due to the limestone cliffs that give the area a Mediterranean aspect. The painting proposes a panoramic landscape of Cape Caliacra, an area with rocky relief, monumental and high shores. The left side of the painting is occupied by limestone rocks, which intertwine with the water area and the sky on the right, generating a puzzle of natural elements. From this perspective, the painter outlines a unitary and balanced composition. The color palette is narrow, consisting of pastel colors: ocher, brown, green and blue. Shades of ocher are reflected in different quantities on all elements of the composition, supporting the impression of balance. The sky and the sea are painted in a light blue, suggesting a sunny day. The shades of blue-green on the surface of the water give the impression that the sea is clear, calm and free of waves. The robustness of the landscape due to the grandeur of the rocks is attenuated by the presence of a tree and a hut on the left side of the painting, which suggests the existence of a human presence. Although extremely vivid, the color does not form strong contrasts, but exudes a calm and warm atmosphere.
