In the summer of 1891 Monet learned that a row of poplars on the river Epte, near to his home at Giverny, were to be felled. Monet paid for them to be left standing long enough for him to paint them. In all he executed 23 paintings of this scene, and exhibited a group of them together in 1892. Eleven of these show this same view at different times of day and in different weather conditions. A particularly marked feature of this work is its combination of a strong surface pattern, emphasised by vigorous brushwork, and the suggestion of pictorial depth conveyed by the continuous zig-zag of trees leading back into the distance.
