Description
This view of the town of Meina near Novara extends horizontally between a lake and hill. The right-hand side of the painting is occupied by the dark hill that gradually fades into the background, while the lake instead moves towards the foreground, progressively widening.
Bright lights twinkle on the hillside, while the horizon is obscured by a bank of clouds that thins out towards a clear sky.
This is an important work by the artist for the quality of the light which almost discreetly evokes a peaceful natural setting.
