• This print reveals Delavallée’s mastery of the variety of techniques at the etcher’s disposal: aquatint for the range of tones in the landscape, deep etching for the swirling effect of the trees, and soft-ground etching for the squiggled pattern on the apron.
• Delavallée’s exquisitely refined style is unique among the Pont-Aven artists. However, this work’s windswept trees and rolling hills indicate Delavallée’s familiarity with the strong contours of Sérusier’s prints.
• Delavallée dedicated this proof, printed on lustrous paper, to Eric Forbes-Robertson, an English painter in residence in Pont-Aven from 1890 to 1894.
