A crucial and pivotal point in the personal life of Macario Vitalis was how, in 1940’s Europe during World War 2, he was placed under confinement at a camp in Germany where he continued to paint, despite the odds. It is said that Vitalis experienced a total rebirth, a second wind as an artist, upon his release as the war drew to an end. At this period, representative of which is this piece, his artistic output reached even greater heights.
