The sun-drenched island of Capri has become Sonia Grineva’s muse. In words and paint she captures the essence of this fabled isle. While not a travelogue or historical treatise, this book is a bit of both. With quotes, stunning photos and artworks by others, the author brings alive Capri from one end of the island to the other – the sights, the sounds, the scents, the people, the legends, the landscape, the flora and the fauna – and the dazzling sunlight which brings all into high relief.
Sonia Grineva’s art is not limited to crafting alluring prose – her true genius lies with brush and paint. As appealing as are the vignettes and the vistas captured in prose and photographs, it is on canvas and paper that the artist’s passion for Capri comes to life. Her palette is brilliant and her brushwork bold. It is through the resultant, sometimes totally abstracted images, that one truly experiences the island’s magic. For those who have never visited Capri, this book will transport you there – and, better yet, tempt you to make the journey.
