Paintings of Taormina in Geocoded Art

Many artists have been attracted to, and felt moved to capture on canvas, the stunning sites of the ruins on Sicily.  Its dramatic setting, perched above the sea in the first range of cliffs in the northeast of the island, was an appropriate place for the drama performed in the theater.  The skeleton of that theater was most often the subject of the painters, as they tried to evoke the long-silences voices.
