“The Bacchant tolls the knell of parting day, Nov 1915” is a painting of a site taking place during World War I. In the foreground you can see the land near a large body of water. You can see a man on the land by a small fire. This depicts that he is a scout since he is alone and the fire he has built is small and concealed. In the middle ground, there is a calm water with boats sailing towards the land. One boat seems to be firing a cannon. In the background, there is clouds and mountains that depicts sunset. The color variations stand out to me the most in this painting. The land is painted with three or four different shades of brown mixed with green. The sunset is also painted with three shades of orange, and even the mountains are painted as blue to depict the reflection of the water.
