Olive Trees at Menton
Henri-Joseph Harpignies

Menton is along the coast from Nice in the south of France. The specific site in this painting has not been identified.

An inscription on the back of the canvas, 'Janvier 1906' (January 1906), probably refers to the date when the canvas was supplied rather than the execution of the painting.
