The Barbizon-school painter Daubigny was one of the artists Van Gogh revered. In May 1890 Van Gogh came to the Parisian suburb of Auvers, where there was a garden that Daubigny had owned. Van Gogh painted vividly the garden in its early-summer fresh flowers and verdant grasses. This was two weeks before his death. A privately-owned work with almost the same composition and content as this one is on loan to the Kunstmuseum Basel in Switzerland.
