In 1886 Cézanne's financial problems came to an end as a result of the substantial inheritance which he received on the death of his father. This study of a copse of trees was probably painted at the Jas de Bouffan, an estate outside Aix-en-Provence where he frequently stayed to look after his mother. The criss-crossed broken brushwork, delicate colour contrasts and balance between surface and spatial effects are typical of Cézanne's work of the later 1880s.
