|Mare Balticum (2005-2011)
'The Baltic Sea has been a route for transit and commerce, but also an area of both natural and cultural wealth, as exemplified by the early German romanticism – with Caspar David Friedrich and Philip Otto Runge – or, much later, the Ahrenshoop landscape painters who settled on the peninsula North-East of Rostock (Germany). Attracted by the strong and beautiful light, they would come and spend mainly the summer period painting in the open the rural scenes and landscapes.
