This work was executed circa 1914-15 according to Dr. Hans-Jürgen Imiela. Liebermann painted a view in oil of the same garden path (measuring 24 x 31 inches) in 1908.
Barbara Gilbert writes that, "Even with a wife and child, Liebermann continued his annual summer trips to Holland. Rather than stay in the small Dutch villages, however, in the 1890s he took his family to stay at the beach in Scheveningen in quarters equivalent to their lifestyle in Berlin; after 1906, they vacationed at the more remote seaside village of Noordwijk" (Barbara Gilbert, ed., Max Liebermann: From Realism to Impressionism, Los Angeles and New York, 2006, p. 41).
