This picture has some epic features. After making an extremely large number of sketches, the painter understood that he had to aspire to a greater generalisation and combinations of decorative patches of colour, which would bestow an epic artistic quality on the image. The trees merge into larger areas, and the contrast of light and dark spaces produces a magnificent impression of nature.
