Vincent van Gogh did not regard this painting as a work in itself. He thought it was 'a rather large study', as he wrote to his brother Theo. In this painting, the effect of light and shadow is not entirely realistic: the shadows cast by the trees do not fall in the same direction as those bast by the rails.
