This large-format painting is closely tied to The Steel Ball, which the Fundación María Cristina Masaveu Peterson acquired in January 2020 along with this work. In it, a large blue field of paint, applied with broad brushstrokes in a steady, quick gesture, seems to represent the surface of water. Two sinuous black lines in the centre may allude to the movement of that water. Dynamism and the relationship with nature, not direct but at least evoked, are the keys to this simple yet striking composition.
