The two paintings by Derain are post-Fauvist works reflecting his fascination with the art of the past. The delicate, lyrical brushwork of Garden at Ponnermaire en Montois reveals his interest in Watteau and Corot, while the subject matter and austere colour scheme of Still Life with Fruit are clearly influenced by 17th-century Dutch art, examples of which Derain collected.
