One of three paintings donated by Mrs McCleve to York Art Gallery.

The theme of figures and animals next to a watering place is widespread in Corot's work, and illustrates how the evocation of mood eventually became more important to the artist than the specific nature of a particular location.

Provenance

Vente O'daord, 5/4/1878 (4). Henry Van den Bergh; Mrs Stephen Roskill.
