The portrait of a man in the garden during the summer day excels in both its generous format and impressionist stylization, as well as the atmosphere. The intimately lit, secluded spot in the garden turned into a quiet corner used by an older man in a suit to read a newspaper. The work with light penetrating through the leaves on the pergola wall is especially brilliant, where an unknown painter evokes shimmering light and shadow with precisely aimed brisk strokes.
