Sargent probably painted this study of a sun-dappled veranda at St-Enogat in Brittany, where he spent the summer of 1875. The light brushwork reveals the influence of the Impressionists, whose work was encountered by Sargent in Paris, where he was studying. He gave this work to his teacher at the time, Carolus-Duran.
