Greek Landscape has the typical arrangement in zones which defines parallel planes. The emphasis is placed on the middle zone, which is occupied by homesteads and clumps of trees, which are rendered in a stylised manner, while the elaboration in terms of colour of the mountain defines the background. The severely simple way in which the foreground is depicted, with vertical brushstrokes, which are perhaps suggestive of a field with ears of corn, produces, fairly insistently, the feeling of an empty surface, a feature encountered in the painting of the Nabi artists.
