As Hans L. C. Jaffé observes, "This dune theme was something new to him, virtually the first appearance in his work of nature in its vastness and all-encompassing magnitude (...)."

"His confrontation in 1909 with the infinity of nature coincides with his joining the Netherlands Theosophical Society, where man's union with the infinitude of the universe was a central problem."
