  • The spiky, jagged edges of the trees and clouds in this landscape suggest the influence of Japanese woodblock prints, which were eagerly studied by many European artists during the late 19th century.
  • The land masses in the foreground and background are indicated by tight bands of parallel lines, accentuating the image’s strong contrast of light and dark.
