"We want to see our 'nymphs' in our gardens and hope that the pictures will be viewed by prone eyes."
Max Slevogt, 1928, quote from: Mitterheinisches Landesmuseum Mainz, Max Slevogt - Estate Neukastel, p. 14, 1972

After he had married Antonie Finkler, Slevogt made Palatinate his new home and rebuild Neukastel Manor, today known as 'Slevogthof' according to his plans. Almost all of Slevogt's landscape paintings were made there and in the surroundings. Our picture was executed at Neukastel in autumn 1903, it shows the chestnut tree and the vine bower in the estate's front yard. The works from around 1900 clearly show the influence of French Impressionism. Slevogt disengaged himself from the constraints of academy painting and overcomes dated views, "it is not possible to splash light onto the palette". He established the ability to capture lighting atmosphere on the canvas through an increasing knowledge of the French Impressionists and their artistic techniques. He developed his experience in plein-air painting, his palette becomes lighter and the manner of painting more pastose. The relation between light and color becomes decisive for his works. His style is a masterly document of German late Impressionism, impressively represented by the triumvirate Liebermann, Corinth and Slevogt.
