Paris in particular, with its recently blossomed impressionism, made a deep impression on the young painter Charlotte Constance Wahlström. The influence of the French is visible in the blossoming fruit tree: fast, moving lines dominate the white-pink bloom of the fruit trees. The color mix skilfully emphasizes the different lighting conditions on the flowers. The green meadow is also characterized by a dynamic application of color, while in the background the church of Torup looks calm and contrasting. Due to the quickly applied color, the picture looks almost like an abstract painting, which enhances the special charm. We find something similar at Max Liebermann, whose garden pictures also have a high level of abstraction.
Charlotte Constance Wahlström (1849-1924) grew up in Svärta in the Södermanland region. She graduated from the Royal Academy of Arts in Sweden between 1878-83, where she won the royal medal for landscape painting. Thanks to scholarships, she was able to continue her studies in Paris and on trips through Europe. In 1904 she won the bronze medal at the St. Louis World's Fair. Her paintings were purchased for the Stockholm Art Academy, the National Museum and the Gothenburg Museum.
