Avenches Aventicum 'Le Cigognier' Switzerland

Sculptural Watercolour® in a box frame 50 x 70 x 5 cm

 

 

Aventicum was once a very important Roman city. These pillars are what remain of a once huge and impressive palace. The larger pillar once had a stork's nest on top that led to the name that is still retained.

The position of the present day town on a hill, together with its many old buildings, provides us with a most attractive skyline. The nearby Roman Amphitheatre is an important cultural centre for open air events that include operas.

In this watercolor, the artist combines reality with a hint of a stage setting, reminding us of the town's centuries old interest in theatrical events.

 

 

This angled photo is of the Sclptural Watercolour on an easel, just before it was quite finished. We hope that this steeply angled shot manages to convey an appreciation of the depth of the work
