Apple Trees is an attractive painting with a decorative use of rich colour and patterning created by the dappled shadows as the bright sunlight filters through the twisted branches. It is dated c.1908, a time when Fox returned to Australia from Paris for several months, not long after his marriage to Ethel Carrick in 1905.
