Stelios Miliades was one of the very few Greek painters to embrace the teachings of French Impressionism in its pure form. Upon completing his studies in Munich, he settled in Paris, where he remained until 1932. He participated in many exhibitions with paintings of the French countryside, mostly views of villages in which the buildings play the primary role. This painting depicts the entrance to the house in the French capital where the artist had his studio. Without beautifying the structure, he tried to denote its unique character with some architectural details. The sentimental aspect is also present, since the subject focuses on his own front door.
