Über das Werk
Depicted here is a sun-bathed meadow landscape, suffused with warmth and a lightness of mood, all captured in a season which can only be surmised at from the vegetation's tinges of incipient yellow-green and the flock of migrating birds in the sky. The distant horizon is blurred by a white tapestry of cloud, whereas the clear blue sky in the foreground heralds the imminent arrival of autumn's first chill.
