This picture, painted in the first years of the 20th century, reflects the feeling of that period: the scenery is presented in a mysterious space, with huge trees weltering in the moonlight. The symbolic composition proclaims the power of nature, eternity and the fragility of human life, and conveys a mystical mood. As a follower of Secessionism, Epstein accentuates the lush shapes of the trees, their spontaneous growth, and the flexible and sleek silhouettes of vegetation, and aims to achieve a symbolic mood unfolding in the evening twilight. Text author Nijolė Tumėnienė.
