Quiet Evening

Oil on canvas, 120 x 180 cm
Národní Galerie, Prague

This painting is pointillist in its handling of the grassy slope but Neo-Romantic in its atmospherics, which inform the composition and colours and insist on a rhythm of curves (as in the tree reflections in the lake, or the slender tree trunks at left) such as was characteristic of heavily stylised European art at the turn of the century.
