With its toile like colouration Roatan is able to “seize the one sharp instant in nature, to imprison it by means of ordered shapes and space relationships,” noted by master painter Milton Avery. “To this end I eliminate and simplify, leaving apparently nothing but colour and pattern.” This magnificent painting is on display at Sotheby's and captures the inspiration to this wonderful coral design. The painter is able to explain the beauty of sea life as it relates to Roatan.
