- 款識：畫家簽名M. Liebermann並紀年1919（左下）
Liebermann’s practice of painting en plein air, as well as his method of exploring the same subject from a variety of viewpoints, demonstrates Liebermann’s status as the most important German post-Impressionist painter. Like Claude Monet, who never tired of painting his garden at Giverny, Liebermann painted the Wannsee garden from a variety of angles and at different times of day. In the present canvas, he depicted a path lined with birch trees that connected his villa with the lake, which can be glimpsed between the tree trunks. To the left of the alley, a woman can be seen working in the cabbage field. When Liebermann had his garden designed, he insisted on keeping the birch trees in their original place and thus created a wonderful picturesque path in his garden which became an inspiring source for many of his Wannsee paintings.
