Mutzner was a Romanian painter of Jewish ancestry, very famous in his time for having embarked on a path of study that led him to share two years of work in Giverny, alongside Claude Monet. After spending part of his life in South America, he dedicated himself to painting the work of the fields with his wife, also a painter. Sanctioned for his ideas during and after World War II, he spent his last years very secluded. His art is therefore of Impressionist origin, although he tends to overlap the brush stroke, passing from the original pointillism to finally expressionist results. The great technical skill of Mutzner is revealed in this work, which shows a church and a village in Vetheuil, a small french city in Val-d'Oise, often depicted in Monet's famous masterpieces. Here the stretch is vibrant, although more composed than the paintings of the great master. The light appears almost extinguished, and the way of treating the trees, from which the first leaves are germinating, denounces the mitteleuropean origin of the author.
