Fritz always had his painting equipment with him when we went on vacation. Canvases and the easel were packed on the roof rack, in his painting backpack were paints, brushes, spatulas, everything he needed to paint. He painted the village of Capoliveri on Elba several times on two vacation trips, often with an animal in the picture. In this work, it is one of the majestic emerald lizards, up to 40 cm long, which were quite common on Elba at the time.
