This painting was completed in the later years of Harpignies’ artist career and life. The influence of Corot as a source of inspiration is visible here and throughout Harpignies’ portfolio – they share a typically green and brown palate; a soft, often indirect light; and the delicate, wispy bristling of foliage.
