This ethereal landscape certainly draws upon the nineteenth century European Romantic tradition. The cool palette of blues, silvers and whites creates a sense of wonderment, together with an atmosphere of solitude and journey’s end. At first glance the scene is rather surreal, but the presence of a dry-stone wall and iron railings in the foreground familiarises the landscape.
