A blossom opening its petals embodies the blooming Jove of the bud pair of lovers. The warm shining of love coming from it blesses and animates the mountains and valley, river, meadows, and trees... We see life and nature drawing closer together and imitating each other. Outlines of the mountain amphitheater repeat the form of the flower calyx, human figures merge into the petals of the bud. Soft pastel shades of the painting evoke dreams of dolce far niente blissful idleness amid landscape strikingly similar to Italian. Skilful combination of fore and background transforms the Morning Blossom into monumental image resembling a living sculpture rising in front of the mountain architecture.
