    This picture was shown in an exhibition of Rousseau's painted studies, held in Paris in 1867. In the accompanying catalogue, it was identified as "A Morning in Early Summer in the Forest of Fontainebleau" and dated 1861. Rousseau's technique, which builds up a lively, light-filled surface with delicate touches of translucent glazes, is characteristic of his mature style.
