To understand this painting you need to be familiar with Rossini’s William Tell Overture. The music starts with “rain drops” (short high notes on the flute) and crescendoes into a full blown “storm” with rolling thunder (drums) and claps of lighting (cymbals). Sydney refers to the Opera House in Sydney, Australia. If the painting looks like a ship on a stormy sea, that’s what I had in mind. To me the Opera House looks like an island ship.
