Acrylic on canvas
99 x 99 cm
This painting belongs to the Serie Negra period (1959-1962), which the artist, Fernando Zobel (1924-1984), describes as large drawings in paint. Its title refers to a genus of moths and can also refer to flightâ€”a favored theme in this series. Movement is depicted through broad strokes, lines, and streaks radiating around a central black figure like a visible force field.
