In this work he appears to reject his Edwardian heritage in favour of both of these earlier and more contemporary influences. The extraordinary freshness of this painting derives from the power of these influences on his way of seeing, in combination with his response to the beauty of the Swiss landscape. The picture is prophetic of the artist's mature work in its acute sense of space, interval and light; in its perfectly judged use of colour and in its concern with the physicality of the painted surface.
