Sveva Caetani: Selected Drawings and Paintings of Recapitulation

McPherson Library Gallery, University of Victoria

Sveva Caetani’s series of surrealistic watercolour paintings titled Recapitulation began as a tribute to her father who died when she was only 17 years old. These paintings, executed with powerful, sharply defined watercolours, explore a stylistic range that includes cubism, futurism, and surrealism. The exhibition includes works from the collections of the Vernon Art Gallery and the Alberta Art Foundation.
