a critic once complained to me that monamy's water didn't look wet: quite right, here it doesn't look like water at all.

1708 Dunkirk 2
1708 Dunkirk 1
The two-pronged fork of Dunkirk's fantastic moles is a sight sufficient to suspend thought, and silence gabble, until further notice. We'll contemplate or ruminate, for the time being. It's a miserable day at the end of February, 1708, in the Graveline Pits.
In my view this painting resembles nothing so much as a poster from the 1920s or 1930s. Monamy was trained in the art of advertising.
