    Blanche Hoschedé-Monet's was strongly influenced by her stepfather, Claude Monet. Her works are highly sought after by art collectors and as she was one of the very few successful female Impressionists. Winter scenes were explored repeatedly by the major Impressionist artists such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro or Alfred Sisley, all of whom embedded this genre in the long tradition of Western art. Bucolic, snow-covered settings offered them the perfect opportunity to study the effects of light, colour and reflection, while allowing them to respond subjectively to the landscapes. This painting reveals how the artist used the techniques of Impressionism to breathe life into winter scenes.
