Originally attributed to the "Fauves" because of his boisterous compositions in strong colors, Vlaminck attained a much calmer palette based on just a few color elements in his later years. Especially his vast landscapes that emanate the immediacy of a looming natural spectacle are characterized by a dramatic chiaroscuro. Sky and landscape are in such strong accordance that a spatial separation seems almost impossible. Vlaminck worked out the forces inherent to the clouds and thus creates not so much a topographically identifiable scene but a great metaphor for the macabre beauty of the primal forces.
