Of this painting the artist wrote that ‘it is a formalized abstracted landscape which only acquired its title shortly before it was finished. I think it is a successful painting of its kind and belongs with the series of similar pictures based on Greek landscape theme done about the same time’ (letter of 22 June 1962).
