While studying at Oxford, Wagner became deeply interested in pastoral landscapes in the tradition of Samuel Palmer. Many of his paintings are charged with a religious meaning although this is sometimes only indirectly indicated. This sunlit path has no obvious religious attributes but may refer to the theme of paradise.
