In 1912 Joseph Raphael moved to Uccle, in Belgium, with his new wife, a young Dutch woman he had met in the artist's colony of Laren, where he had lived for several years. In Uccle he painted radiant views of his home and gardens, rendered in a vivid palette and broad brushstrokes The present work epitomizes Raphael's work from this period, which earned him a silver medal at the 1915 Panama Pacific International Exposition.
