In Landscape with Trees, he follows the paratactical method of composition, with towering trees in the foreground, some houses, and, in the background, mountains, arranged in successive zones, parallel with the surface of the picture. In this way, he departs from traditional perspective, as depth is defined by the gradation of the planes. This practice brings him close to Cézanne, as he builds up the composition with colour, which dominates not only as a structural element, but also by its anti-naturalistic rendering is at the same time an expression of a vital inner life.
