Lot Essay

This work is similar to Vaches à la mare (Musée du Louvre, no. 1446), and to a second painting that was sold in the Margueritte sale (Paris, Hotel Drouot, April 2, 1914, no. 64).

The authenticity of this painting has been confirmed by the Comité Rousseau. It will be reproduced in the Catalogue raisonné of Rousseau's paintings in preparation by Pierre Miquel.

This painting will be included in volume II of the forthcoming catalogue raisonné on Rousseau by Michel Schulman.
