A blossom opening its petals embodies the blooming love of the pair of lovers. 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 in the painting evoke dreams of Dolce far nienteâ€”blissful idleness amid landscape strikingly similar to Italian. Skilful combination of fore- and background transform the Morning Blossom into monumental image resembling a living sculpture rising in front of the mountain architecture.
