The great sweep of clouds and windblown grass of the large meadow in this painting create a striking arabesque effect and  was reportedly the main reason for painting the work. Oliver Nuse's treatment of the tiny forms of men working in the middle distance emphasizes the comparative monumentality and power of nature.
