In 1982 Buffet was in Brittany and painted
several paintings of the landscape there
with its characteristic green hills, rising
from the beach and populated by simple
white houses. Buffet’s distinctive style,
with its dominant dark lines, is also shown
to its full advantage in the present work.
The approaching storm imbues the
painting with a sense of drama, likewise a
typical element in Buffet’s extensive body
