“…Not the rectilinear structures of the city, but relaxed and undulant curves, looser and sometimes uncharacteristically scrubby paint, interruptions to the flow by way of tracks, angled shadows against the curves, the rambling procession of trees across a bleached surface. Here, his masterly control of the light is most personal.”
