The scene is probably in the neighbourhood of Daubigny's home in Auvers in France. The lack of foreshore suggests that the view was painted from 'Le Botin', a ferry which Daubigny converted into a floating studio. This painting shows the broad handling of paint which was characteristic of his later work.
