José Ferre Clauzel?

Actually looks like it might be older than Clauzel.

This work was painted 'en plein air' in a suburb west of Paris shortly after the turn of the century, at a time when Realism and Naturalism were considered conventional, conservative, in relation to the Fauves, who would shock the Parisian art world with their 'wild' expression of colors and overtly liberal brushstrokes.

The artist observably strove for an accurate depiction of the natural world, to express realistically the natural setting in which he evidently enjoyed immersing himself; without unnecessary embellishment or stylish interpretation.

This happens to be a park where, as a child, and even recently, I would take walks to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city (a ten minute train ride from the center of Paris, and a few steps beyond l'Institut Pasteur). The park has changed little since the artist painted the image above.
