Lot Essay

Francis Newton Souza demonstrates the inherent tension between nature and civilization in this landscape from 1961. The artist expertly uses line to highlight the clash between the natural and the manmade, juxtaposing the wild and tumultuous foreground of nature with a cramped and cornered city in the upper right.
