Painted between 1900 and 1901, Orange Trees in Mallorca is an emblematic work from this deeply personal and important period in the artist's production. The island inspired some of Mir's most striking and original compositions, in which forms merge into evanescent fields of colour. Describing Mir's years in Mallorca, Francesc Miralles comments ‘with Joaquim Mir we enter a new dimension in landscape painting. He needs to have nature in front of him. That is why he always paints en plein air and does not make studies, because it is only the direct contemplation of nature that produces the effect of colour that only he can see' (Joaquim Mir, Antológica 1873-1940, Fundació la Caixa, Barcelona, 2009, p. 16).

Mir's passion for colour had dominated his work from the time of his association with La Colla del Safrà, the group of young artists that painted in the countryside on the outskirts of Barcelona in the late 1890s and met at Els Quatre Gats café in town. Fellow Safrà artists included Ricardo Canals and Isidro Nonell, their works characterised by a distinctive use of yellow in their palettes, and for Mir at least, the substitution of black for blue, carmine and emerald.
