This oil on canvas measures 54 x 65 cm and portrays a landscape genre, currently held in a private collection. The piece exemplifies the use of light and color typical of the Impressionist style.

As for the composition itself, the artwork captures a serene rural setting. The viewer’s eye may be drawn to the contrasts between the architectural elements and the natural surroundings. A small building with a pointed roof nestles amid the soft, lush vegetation, suggesting a harmonious coexistence with the land. An array of brushstrokes convey the texture of trees and foliage, as well as the uneven surfaces of a tufted, glowingly lit field. The play of light and shadow is evident, creating a sense of depth and dimension across the canvas. Cool and warm hues intermingle, reflecting changes in lighting and suggesting the fleeting moments typical of Impressionist works, wherein the precise time of day is less distinct than the overall mood or atmosphere conveyed through color and form.
