This work was made by August Macke in 1914, the year in which he and his friends Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet visited Tunisia. The exotic atmosphere of the North African country was fundamental for the achievement of his artistic apotheosis and, in the few months that he spent there, he produced a series of works now considered masterpieces.

This work was made by August Macke in 1914, the year in which he and his friends Paul Klee and Louis Moilliet visited Tunisia. The exotic atmosphere of the North African country was fundamental for the achievement of his artistic apotheosis and, in the few months that he spent there, he produced a series of works now considered masterpieces. Here the expressionist painting of Macke undergoes a transformation and after painting pleasant and colourful urban contexts, in his works he introduces sunny landscapes, figures, and some abstract paintings. "Landscape near the sea" is a very bright canvas, with vivid and intense colours: blue, green and yellow in particular stand out among the houses of the village painted with more delicate colours. The bright colours reveal a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Various styles are mixed in the picture: geometric and linear houses refer to Cubist art; the floral elements on the right are unequivocally abstract; the spots of colour representing houses and some plants belong to Impressionism. Together with great artists such as Marc and Kandinsky, Macke became one of the leading exponents of the German expressionist movement Der Blaue Reiter (The Blue Knight). Light and colour were always fundamental components for the group: they believed that the two elements could express their deepest feelings and find their own spirituality. A phrase from Macke's diary confirms the importance of colour and the influence it had on his art: "I follow an impulse that is so quiet and deep inside me: I feel it, colour has me. I endeavour to find it, it possesses me forever, I know, this is the meaning of the happy hour: colour and me, we are one."
