Corot’s three paintings in Budapest well represent the most significant stages and genres of his oeuvre. Alongside an early, classicising landscape painted in the vicinity of Rome and a rustic portrait of a woman executed at the end of the 1860s, the Souvenir de Coubron represents the artist’s mature style, which also brought him great success and appreciation. From 1867 Corot paid several visits to the Gratiot family in Coubron. During the course of a longer stay in 1872, he painted six pictures, including the Budapest one, which in Roubaut’s oeuvre catalogue was given the subtitle Woodcutter and Peasant Woman in a Meadow by a Willow Forest.
