Jawlensky's serial images have been compared to those of Monet, who painted some thirty views of Rouen Cathedral in various weather conditions and times of day. Monet was interested in the effects of light and nature, and essentially painted what he saw. Jawlensky, on the other hand, took his inspiration from nature but did not limit himself to a description of visual perception.
