Catalogue Note

This work was painted in 1880, after Firmin-Girard moved to Farcy-les-lys, a village alongside the Seine, close to the Fontainebleau forest. Firmin-Girard often painted the nearby parks and gardens. The park in which these children play in located in the castle of the family Sansal, in downtown Farcy-les-lys.
