Dusk falls and highlights the outline of architectural agapanthus flower heads; bold brilliant Echinacea; soft vibrations of cornflower blue Scabiosa and Delphinium; and starry white Aster luminous against a pale viridian sky. The night time garden draws on.
Named after Titus Livius who was known as one of Rome's distinguished historians, he was known as 'the man from Pompeii' and the tones of this painting bear semblance to the classic greens found in the frescoes of Pompeii.
