This picture was purchased under the title 'Landscape'. The artist said that it was painted in the Forest of Fontainebleau close to the village of Barbizon. (Letter of 15 May 1953).
It did not pass through the hands of D.-H. Kahnweiler, who took all Derain's production from 1920 into 1922, and was therefore probably painted either later in 1922 or in 1923.
