This charming painting depicts a curated garden in summer, and is by Hans Iten, the finest flower painter of his time. The garden is flooded in bright sunlight, while the trees in full leaf cause dappled shade. The composition makes the picture seem as though it is being viewed through a window, the tops of the trees projecting out of the picture plane. This gives the viewer the sense that they are experiencing the view through the trees in real life.
