Entering the exhibition “Ocean Liners: Speed and Style” feels a bit like embarking an ocean liner. Colourful ribbons above you simulate the very moment of farewell, when they soon will no longer connect the parting travellers on board with the beloved persons staying behind on the pier.
The light reflects upon the water. Palazzi sinking into the water so it seems... The play of light is varied at different times of the day. Monet, for example, studied the same scene in changing light from his hotel window during his stay in Venice.
