The present work is an expressive vision of a painting showcasing Herbin at the peak of his involvement with the Fauve movement. It combines deft brushwork with a sensitive and emotive use of color. Having started his career by working in an Impressionist and then Divisionist style, Herbin fully embraced Fauvism by 1906, exhibiting alongside André Derain, Georges Braque and Maurice de Vlaminck at the 1907 Salon des Indépendents. This 1907 oil at the zenith of his Fauve practice infuses what might otherwise be a typical park scene with emotion and vibrancy through Herbin’s strategic use of saturated color. Herbin adeptly captures the reflection of the trees upon the pond as well as the skewing of their reflection through the ripples, continuing the examination of the effect of light and color on water that originated with Monet. 

This work is an eloquent example of the impact of photography on painting. With the advent of photography in the early 1800s and its proliferation into everyday life by the turn of the century, painting was no longer confined to serving purely documentary purposes. With this new freedom of practice, Impressionist and Fauve artists such as Herbin were able to reinvent the possibilities of painting to emphasize self-expression, individual perspective and emotional release. The following years would see the artist move into the famed Bateau Lavoir studios in Paris and work alongside artists Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque and Juan Gris to rapidly evolve his style through Cubism, ultimately becoming a founding member of the Abstraction-Création movement.
