Moonlight, Carmel
Moonlight, Carmel
After spending the first half of his life in the consistently war-torn Yugoslavia, Alexander Dzigurski came to America with his family in 1949. During the 1950s, he settled in California where he began painting the rocky coasts and seascapes for which he is best known. A New York critic once called him the poet of the sea. Dzigurski himself declared that the solitary beauty and grandeur of his mountain and ocean scenes, like this one of Moonlight, Carmel, were a metaphor for the freedom and peace he had enjoyed since coming to America.
