We show this picture and the rest of his remarkable work under three separate catagories, as his art fits into each: Art Deco, Symbolist, and Pastoral & Visionary.
The Theatre at Delphi in Greece was built in the 4th Century B.C. I t gives spectacular views of the valley and mountains beyond, and this element is captured by Decaris in his engraving as he also gives a detailed account of the Theatre ruins. The Theatre was built of local Parnassus limestone. The scene lends itself most suitably to the artist’s style and method of engraving.
The Theatre was a venue for the festivals that took place in Delphi and there would be performances of plays, poetry and music. There were 35 rows which allowed for five thousand spectators.
