Most of Nándor Katona's works depict scenes of nature from the land under the High Tatras, which he considered his home despite having spent much of his life in Budapest. He was influenced strongly by Ladislav Mednyánszky and adopted his master's propensity to depict fleeting atmospheres and states of light, his painterly gesture and reverence for the subject matter.

This intimidating view of massive High Tatras peak uses trees to show the smallness of man compared to the unstoppable geologic forces.
