This picture, made during Stanisławski’s Paris period, calls to mind the French Impressionists, especially Claude Monet. Painted against the sunlight, this composition offered him an opportunity to register the flickering play of light and capture on the canvas the changing colours it causes. The hives hewn out of tree-trunks cast coloured shadows; the flowery field, painted with scattered specks of colour, seems to be swaying; and the leafless boughs of an old apple-tree in the distance enhance the drama in the composition.
If the foreground looks experimental, the motif of the boughs, expressively contorted like a piece of delicate lace, is a harbinger of the Secession, a style based on the wavy line.
