This painting from 1870s depicts spring flowers in disarray on a stone doorway. It is an example of the artist's effort of finding a new way to depict flowers which is far removed from the traditional staged manner. This Grivolas painting demonstrates the artist’s quest for natural light and luminosity. Its subject concerns the 19th century reconsideration of depicting nature through landscapes, gardens and flowers, etc., affirming the importance of working outdoors, en plein air. Grivolas was one of the new generation of artists who came up with this novel idea of representing nature, which culminated with the Impressionists. Grivolas works are found in Musée de Niort, Musée des Beaux-Arts, Narbonne, Toulon City Hall.
