The Tuscan valleys and hills. The Tuscan valleys and hills, we are in the area between Pisa and Florence, in the hottest period of the year, lose their bright colors to make room for the dull colors. The vegetation, devoid of spring rains, turns off, dries up, the land, now free from cultivation, leaves room for the dust of the clods turned over. The land is the real protagonist of the Tuscan summer, it is she who determines the varied composition of the territory with her ocher or deep brown tips. The only bright color that can contrast the dusty streaks is the sky illuminated by the scorching summer sun. Here is how the artist has been able to center the elements that characterize this period of the year. His technique hides the modernity of the base on which it rests. The result is an elegant, beautiful picture, which leaves space for the mind to wander in search of those small details that only the artist’s sensitivity has been able to highlight.
