In Andreescu's landscapes the rich colours of grass, foliage, rocks, and sky, and the structural appearance of trees in the woods at Fontainebleau, exerted a continual attraction. But Andreescu was also proficient at intricately nuanced whites, greys and light ochres in a village scene such as Winter at Barbizon, exhibited at the 1881 Paris Salon.
