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

of work.
