Village of Pelekas, Corfu, by Angelos Giallinas

The village of Pelekas sits high above the west coast of the Island, and the houses seem to tumble down the steep slopes. Lithograph by Aspioti after the original watercolour.

 

Angelos Giallinas (1857-1939) was a watercolourist with a prolific output of work. His paintings were a particularly popular source for postcard and other illustrations of Corfu landscape and life in the early part of the 20th C.
