Artwork note:

Untitled or Stormy Weather over the Bekaa Valley shows the recurrent influence of Cezanne in this work. The picture is constructed with juxtaposed areas of dark, leaden color, and perspective is suggested not in line but chromatically, la Cezanne, using the passage from one plane of color to another to create depth. This windswept landscape crushed beneath a stormy sky is characteristic of the dramatized, violent Romanticism of many of Charaf's landscape.
