On a diagonal path alongside an orchard of flowering apple trees, a young woman rides a donkey. Behind her walk two young lovers, their heads barely visible above the fields of new grain. The scene evokes spring, with its fragrance, bursting growth, and romance. Surprisingly, this was not a common subject for painters at the time.

After his first venture on his studio boat, Daubigny embarked on more painting trips—often for weeks at a time—in spring, summer, and fall. The pictures created on his boat trips have a watery foreground that features reflections of the sky, clouds, and trees. No one had ever painted landscapes like this; he had invented another new compositional type that everyone recognized then as highly original.

At the Salon of 1864, Monet saw Daubigny’s "Cliffs at Villerville" and must have appreciated the way it captured the ever-changing light and weather at the seashore. Soon Monet created his own large picture of another stretch of beach and cliffs in Normandy, and exhibited it at the following year’s Salon, as if in dialogue with Daubigny.

Monet visited the Netherlands and painted this landscape near the village of Zaandam, very likely from a boat, in the manner of Daubigny. Like the older artist, Monet concentrated on the colorful reflections in the water and on capturing nuances of light and atmosphere.
