Albert Marquet worked in the Luxembourg Gardens as early as 1898. In all the pictures painted there, his love of open space is manifest. The artist shows a wide square before the palace, a path running off. Marquet focuses his attention on details: it is remarkable how he discriminates among various shades of green in the foliage while the sun is only just rising over the horizon.
