The vertical composition of this landscape emphasizes the steep rocky hill and tall pine trees. It was likely painted near the Château Noir, a neo-Gothic castle in Provence with views of Mont Sainte-Victoire, or within the forest of Fontainebleau, an area southeast of Paris. The rock-strewn hillside in this painting is made up of short "constructive" brushstrokes of green and orange, broken up by the gray, blue, and pink of the stone and its shadows, a style the artist developed by the late 1870s.
