Park in Marienburg – happy for Julia Clover plot. He himself thought so, and wrote him repeatedly.

Clover rarely depicted middle of a Sunny day, the brush the sweeter the sunset, occasionally the sun, or the sun in the gloomy weather.

In this light the prospect of a Clover reports great and masterful light and color.

Landscapes involving water Clover especially melodic music, they literally sound ( "Fishing village", "Pond with white lilies", "Lake with water lilies",
"Autumn Park","Fishing village".
