Ortygia Sunset, Syracusa, Sicily, 8 x 10 in., oil on linen
I finally have finished touching up and documenting my Neapolitan and Sicily paintings from my trip earlier this year. Here is a great view of the end of Ortygia island in the city of Syracuse, Sicily.
Syracuse is a pleasant place, very cleaned up compared to most of Italy. It is also the home to Carravagio’s Saint Lucy painting which is worth a trip by itself (see image below). Syracuse was once described by Cicero as “the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all.”
