This twilight scene has a deep sense of mystery, yet is underscored by a warmth through the use of orange and pink tones. The complex pattern of the tree branches create a mystical feeling throughout this beautiful landscape, typical of the Symbolist paintings by artists from Northern Europe at the end of the 19th century.
