1967, 'Big Blue Sea,' Walborg Norrman (1919-2000)

1967, 'Big Blue Sea,' by Walborg Hedvig Carola Norrman (1919-2000).

This sunny painting is Dufy like in its azure colouring. A big, blue sea curls around the bay, boats bobbing near the shoreline. A plethora of cyprus trees and exotic palms crowd the hillside. Heather coloured hills roll away into a hot sky.
