Eugen (Eugène) Jettel is regarded as one of the main representatives of the Austrian Stimmungsrealismus. 1873/4 Jettel moved to Paris, because he got an offer from the gallery owner Charles Sedelmeyer to pay him a high fixed sum each year for his paintings. Sedelmeyer later reduced this amount considerably, which made Eugen Jettel financially dependent. Eugen Jettel lived in Paris until 1897, in 1884, the year in which the present painting was finished, he lived at 6 Rue Larochefoucauld. His Paris address was the contact point for many other artists, including Max Liebermann, Franz von Lenbach and Mihály Munkácsy. His paintings of his Parisian period were regarded by his contemporaries as particularly subtle and atmospheric.
