This picture, like the two other winter views of the Tuileries by Pissarro in the Museum's collection, belongs to the first series of works (1898–99) that he painted from his apartment in the rue de Rivoli, Paris. The pictures were well received, and the following year he rented the same apartment and executed another fourteen views.
