Five Umbrellas is a soothing genre scene that depicts a peaceful stretch of Santa Monica Beach just before a summer sunset. Although a famous tourist destination spot that is known around the world, here, artist George Gallo presents the viewer with an intimate glimpse of a private oceanfront intended for members’ eyes only and captures its mesmerizing tranquility through horizontal bands of color.
