Like a number of paintings shown in this room, the primary effect of this coastal scene is one of extreme contrasts of colour. The pale tones of the sunrise and chalky coastal rise are dramatically divided by dark areas of cloud and coarse grass. In the foreground, the two horses pulling the cart accentuate the gentle undulation of the track.
