More Detail

This realistic oil painting depicts the “Duomo di San Giorgio” in Ragusa Ibla. Riccardo Penna started to work on the painting in 2003 and finished it by 2010. Since it took him 7 years to complete the work, one can still see the palm trees (which have been destroyed by insects and can no longer be found in this area). Thus the image embodies both, a time travel a few years back, but also a kind of summary of different periods.
