San Francisco

Joan Savo

California Palace of the Legion of Honor

Miss Savo continues her variations on the isolated figure dissolving into a beachscape. The dominant mood is one of lyrical ethereality and retrospection, sensitively established by muted tonalities of sandy greys, yellows and greens, and the pale blues that shoreline background suggests. One feels however that two or three of these paintings exhaust Miss Savo's theme.
