Guilloux, a modest employee at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, was a self-taught artist who exhibited paintings and drawings in a Symbolist style in fin-de-siècle Paris. Even though he used a combination of watercolor and crayon in this view of a Breton landscape, he was able to mimic the soft velvety qualities of pastel in the luminous emerald valley, the blended shadows on the hillside, and the foreground foliage.
