A striking contrast between the dark silhouette of the grand cathedral and the spectacularly vivid sky, this painting beautifully captures the evening light in this sublime setting.
The loose brush strokes have allowed the artist to skilfully describe the features of the building whilst conveying the shadow which imposes it as the sun sets. The truly delectable result makes the viewer wish to be wondering the streets of this city at dusk.
