Tuesday Morning / Interpretation of ‘Row of Trees near the
Shore’ by Nathaniel Hone.
Amongst the various memories that the artist has in relation to his grandparents and the birth of his daughter, is the one of trees found in between the Cottonera Bastions (Cospicua area). On Tuesdays, in the streets between the bastions of Cottonera, one
finds a huge open market.
The artist spent many summers living with his grandparents and Tuesday mornings were dedicated to the market. He has many memories of specific places his grandparents would stop to shop, but one of the strongest memories was of the towering trees casting precious shadow over the marketplace. In the afternoons,
once the market is over, the streets get quite and give way to the chirp of cicadas that fill the same trees.
A new memory of these trees is related to the visits he, his wife and newborn daughter paid to his grandparents. When visiting them in Cospicua, the artists would park underneath the same trees he had sought shade under in his childhood.
