This work is an excellent example of Russian Realist landscape painting in the second half of the nineteenth century. Ivan Shishkin painted the picture in Dubki Park, on the shore of the Gulf of Finland, twenty miles from St Petersburg.

He first came here in the 1860s, when he planned to open a studio where landscapists could work in the summer. The artist was a regular visitor to the park in the 1880s, when he painted this particular canvas.
