The romance of sea travel- invigorating salt air, the limitless horizon and its inherent perils (not to mention seasickness) only enhanced the exotic tropic shores and genial population which greeted the traveler. When they finally disembarked, the artist was free to explore the island and revel in the pristine light and flower-strewn vistas ...
