In this beautiful painting, Maleas, masterfully minimizes the realistic elements while anthropomorphizing the objects (two trees) and leveling the painted space to illustrate what the eyes of the soul see; the spread of color and studied distribution of volumes impressively submit the viewer to the reading of the soul of the landscape. With the symbolist climate as a starting point, it distances itself from visual reality, disposing it to penetrate the deep nature of things. He eliminates the three-dimensional perspective and organizes the subject in distinct color zones, reducing natural objects to volumes and shapes without the loss of the slightest ridge, from their essential substance.
