In the late 1890s-early 1900s, when this study was written in. Borisov-Musatov spent every summer in the old landowner estates of the Saratov province of the Sleptzovka and the Zubrilovka.

Writer a.M.Fedorov wrote about the artist’s paintings:"…Looking at this blue young sky among the white clouds that he loved to portray in. Musatov, I recall the wolves spills, the green island with valleys in the forest, white from the lilies of the valley, as if the clouds had fallen from the sky into the grass and lurked there".
