The Duomo

The Duomo, Florence, 1948

oil on canvas

I am not exactly sure how Kokoschka came to mind but he did and perusing available images I came across this wonderful painting of the Duomo in Florence. Most of the work I know by Kokoschka are portraits done with the same intensity of color and richness of paint and line.
