Theo Corones' painting of the Light House.

My Uncle Theo (my mother Envangalia (Angie's) older brother), lost a leg to infection in his late 20's.

Part of his rehabilitation involved art therapy; although he was a very accomplished artist from a young age.

He painted from memory. Rarely did he paint from nature, or from a photograph or other image.

His memories were "idealistic".

This is Theo's impression - painted in about 2 hours - of the light house at Ayios Nikolaos, in the north of the island, above Plattia Ammos.

To see a photograph of Theo, in 1931, as a 6 year old, alongside his mother, and two sisters, go to:
