Sonata of Spring

The effect of polyphony is produced not only by repeating horizontal rhythm on a plane surface, imitated by rows of fir-trees, windmills or string of sea spray, but also by penetrating into the deepness of space. Here we face the most unique and original phenomenon in all the art of those days - multilayered translucent space, comming out of or disappearing in depth.
