 After a brief trip to Tangiers and return to several other Spanish cities, Aldro T. Hibbard departed for Italy and the Isle of Capri. The strong sun and brilliant blue waters of the region, especially the Blue Grotto, resulted in some of Hibbard's strongest paintings of his ex-patriot years. He spent almost two months in the region. From Capri he went on to Venice and perhaps his most productive period while abroad. Venetian Sail is an energetic and spontaneous moment befitting the romantic and magical setting of this artistic mecca.
