Alternating strips of light and dark green paint show sunlight playing on the trees late one summer afternoon. The view has been cropped at the top to give the painting an impression of depth, despite its small size.

This avenue of chestnut trees at Cézanne's father's country house was one of the artist's favourite motifs.
