Painted in 1887, a year after van Gogh had moved to Paris from his native Holland. The artist's response to the work of the Impressionists is evident in the short, straw-like strokes of paint and bright colour. Asnières, a district on the river Seine near Paris, was popular with the Impressionists and the site of several paintings by van Gogh, dating from his first period in Paris.
