He has a romantic mind and a very strong social feeling. Gradually he develops his own philosophical agnostic principles. He looks for the sense of things. He thinks finding it in what human beings themselves realise ethically and aesthetically. In his works there are reminiscences of earlier transcendental feelings. The warmth of his colours and the luminosity of his paintings reveal affinities with Turner. His style is free, not conventional at all.
