Konstantin Korovin, 1861 - 1939, was born in Moscow to a family of artists and merchants. He has been called the greatest exponent of Russian Impressionism, and there have been many Museum and Gallery exhibits dedicated to his art. His authenticated pieces have sold for millions of dollars. He was a prolific painter and his body of work is quite formidable. In 1923 he relocated to Paris where he experienced a downturn in his financial stability. During this sad time in his life, he created paintings of his earlier works to sell to tourists to make ends meet. This could be where this piece originated.
The painting is in excellent condition and has been housed in a recent frame designed to compliment the painting.
