• Sérusier experimented with different effects of color in his prints. His choice of yellow paper lends The End of the Day a warm, serene tone at odds with the depiction of a harsh rural life in which a laborer seems to sag with exhaustion after a day spent cultivating the fields.
• This version of The End of the Day is a trial proof. The final version was produced by a professional printer in Paris. In the pencil notations he made in the margin of this proof, Sérusier informs the printer that the work is "bon à tirer" (fit to print). He also requests that the printer employ a lighter shade of green in the final version of the lithograph.
