Cameron's austere landscape, first exhibited in 1913, provides a striking contrast to the romantically charged Highland scenery of earlier painters. He emphasises the essential outline and structure of the mountainous range, including bands of deep shadow. Illuminated grassy stretches and clearer patches in the sky which relieve the sombre slopes. Superfluous detail and narrative content are excluded. Nothing detracts from the central peak's overwhelming presence. Cameron's bold, stark etchings certainly informed his painted compositions of this sort. To a certain extent they also reflect Rembrandt's influence and also that of Whistler.
