In the post-war period, the Istrian Hollesch carried out a very personal research based on Venetian art, interpreted however in a surrealist and expressionist way thanks to an expository freshness that earned him the participation in some Art Biennials. Starting from a fictitious, almost magical realism, the artist soon arrives at a fantastic conception that sees the features of things dissolve into a magma of colors capable of assuming particular material value. This also happens in the work here, where the reflections of the lagoon city are transformed into a rhythmic series of elements, with an intense and happy impact, which unite the distant beauty of the buildings with the arched underscores of the gondolas and the crooked lines of the red piers that sink their roots into the omnipresent liquid element, the triumph and ruin of Venice.
