This typical coastal forest scene resonates with so many of us who have experienced the contemplative quiet of a redwood grove. While intimate and accessible, the scene draws our attention through the shadowed foreground and into the misty atmospheric glow of the sunlight coming through the trees beyond. It recalls Tavernier's early Parisian exposure to tonal Barbizon landscapes before he relocated to California at the age of thirty-one.
