Description  
After 1880, Santoro began to paint colour-saturated scenes depicting North Africa. Like his family members, he often travelled and most likely made his way to the region. His ability to capture the white sunlight of the Sahara, transforms his small-scaled paintings into gem-like mementos of his travels. This image depicts a dessert scene of people collecting water with their camels. The use of red within the painting is a direct homage to the work of artists such as Boudin, who developed the technique of using specs of red within a muted palette to focus the viewer’s attention.
