Pissarro and his family returned to live in Pontoise, about twenty miles north-west of Paris, in 1872, staying till 1884.
The hilly landscape there, and at nearby L'Hermitage, supplied the subjects of a large number of paintings and also some of his finest etchings.
The period largely coincided with the eight 'Impressionist Exhibitions' held in Paris from 1874 to 1886, in each of which Pissarro participated.

This stunning aquatint is exceptional amongst Pissarro's etchings both for its wide panoramic format and literally in the large dimension of its width.
It is equally original in its composition and spatial organisation.

Only 4 or 5 lifetime proofs were printed. The etching was not formally published until 1923, the only edition. Porcaboeuf printed the edition of 18 for the artist's son Rodo.
