The painting is part of a series that was painted between 1876-1877. Oschede, a man of advanced views, who was one of the first to consider the power of art of impressionist artists.

Monet always had a weakness for the beauty of the garden, a little later he will have his own in Giverny, and the painter himself will argue that this is the best of what he created. That is why the master has always been sensitive to the image of the garden, trying to realize the momentary impression of the transient beauty of nature.

The dense thickets of the garden seem to hide something mysterious, colorful texture and small strokes set the landscape in motion. From a distance, the landscape resembles a mosaic, colorful and living.

Unfortunately, after a few years, the philanthropist went bankrupt and all the works of art decorating the castle were sold out. The “corner of the garden" was bought by the opera singer J. Faure, subsequently, having sold it to the Russian philanthropist Ivan Morozov. After nationalization, the painting became part of the Hermitage collection.
