Morisot was deeply influenced by Manet, whose brother Eugène she married in 1874. The same year, she exhibited in the first Impressionist Exhibition. In 1881 the critic Gustave Geffroy observed: ‘No one represents Impressionism with more refined talent or with more authority than Morisot’. This scene was painted ‘en plein air’ at Bougival, west of Paris, where the artist stayed during the summers of 1881 and 1882.
