    Krouthén is linked with the many depictions of apple trees in bloom and red, wooden houses he painted during the latter part of his career. This work is one of his early productions and depicts a young doctor and his family in their garden in Linköping. What stands out is the careful attention to detail and the accomplished rendering of the overall atmosphere of the scene – something sought after in 1880s plein-air painting and which was learnt in France.
