Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, as Alice Guillermo puts it, took great pleasure in painting seascapes and bay scenes. Often, he opted for a subdued, gray palette with some impasto, but he loved the space of sky that they opened out to him. The gray tones captured the European atmosphere of days turning into winter and the melancholy air that they evoked. He painted the curving coastlines and the boats plying the water in canvases which are now recollections of places he visited. This blissful masterpiece, a seascape wherein the sky unifies with the sea - finesse but simply communicated by his use of light, color and composition, all of which combined into a scenery which is spirited.
