Tuscany as Nature and Culture
Tuscany is without doubt one of those wine regions that give some of the most important reds in the world. The most common autochthon Tuscan grape varieties can be found listed here in alphabetical order.
I do not know which grape was in the field of this winemaker, but I know that the taste was according to the pleassure of my sophisticated palate. The wine cellar was absolutely worth a visit and here we found the evidence of how traditional processes transform nature into culture.A little bit to the north west from the farm the interesting Montecatini Alto can be found at the top of the hill behind the famous Terme. Nature is beautiful and my painting (cultural expression) is another example of how nature and culture are interlinked and not necessary contradictories.
I made a version of this motive last summer, but was not satisfied with the result. With some "boring free time" in the rainy weather, I changed part of the painting, and now I think it is better.
Round 5 Year 3 of the ABC Wednesday has started and
A for Art or
A for Alter Nature into Culture
can be my contribution.
