This work of art is one of the most representative of Corot's artistic style, who stood out for his ability to capture the natural beauty of landscapes.

The composition of the painting is impressive, as Corot manages to create a sense of depth and perspective through the use of the atmospheric perspective technique. The path that stretches through the forest is the main element of the composition, and becomes the focal point of the work.
