The calm hilly landscape under the azure sky is strikingly reminiscent of the author's quieter period, when after 1900 he returned to realism and lived in Vítanov and Železnice. Kaván works influenced by his studies in the landscape studio of Julius Mařák, where he joined in 1889, he lives very modestly and solitarily, and he soon excels in realistic depictions of the landscape above his classmates.
