Grabar said that working on frost awakened his "painterly enthusiasm": "There is little in this world as astonishing in the beautiful polyphony of its moments as a sunny day of frost, where the colour palette changes by the minute, tinted in the most fantastic shades to which our palettes simply cannot do justice".
