In the years between 1894 and 1896 Lebourg painted regularly in the Netherlands and especially in the southern part of Holland. His impressionistic view already changed to a more heavy use of contrasting colours. The influence of Jongkind is remarkable. This work is a forerunner of the fauvist style Lebourg adopts in the early twentieth century.
