Pink almond blossom gives the first sign of Spring next to the slender birches which are yet to bud. Like the silvery blues appearing among the clouds these touches of colour delicately bring the mundain landscape to life. One of Corot’s late works, the painting shows the modern French landscape with the suburban town of Corbeil at the centre.
