The article explores the painting 'Twilight' (1893) by the famous Latvian landscapist Vilhelms Purvitis found in a private collection. It belongs to Purvitis study years (1890-1897) and is the earliest of his large-scale paintings. The lyrical landscape was possibly created in St. Petersburg, after sketches made in open air. The article traces similarities with Russian painting of the period as well.
