The theme reflects Daubigny's interest in the rendering of the atmospheric affects of landscape. A painting of this subject was exhibited at the Paris Salon of 1861 and Daubigny also executed a "cliché-verre" version in 1862. This state of the etching appeared with the title "Parc a mouton le matin" in the first volume of "Eaux-fortes modernes" in 1862-1863.
As famous for his original etchings as for his paintings, Charles Daubigny holds a prime position in mid nineteenth century French art. A leading artist of the great Barbizon landscape school, Charles Francois Daubigny directly influenced the following generation of Impressionist painters. He is considered an important precursor of impressionism.
Daubigny settled in Barbizon to work outside in nature. Important was his meeting with Camille Corot in 1852. In 1870 in London he met Claude Monet, and together they left for the Netherlands. Back in Auvers, he met Paul Cézanne, another important impressionist. It is assumed that these younger painters have been influenced by Daubigny.
