William Bouguereau  ·  The Wave  ·  1896  ·  Private Collection

The paintings are roads: a walk, some fresh air, the spirals of a storm. It makes no sense to paint a cluodburst in a sunny day because in that work never would rain. We are surrounded by alphabets, it requires respect. This painting is sterilised: the horizon has no depth, the water does not wet anyhingh that touches, the big girl is about to be crash by a wave that will never joint her because it is a lifeless wave, as much as everything else. There are no fish, but if there were they would not want to swim in this painting. © Graziano Spinosi
