Armand Guillaumin may be less well known than his illustrious friends Paul Cézanne and Camille Pissarro, but he was indeed a talented landscape painter, especially in the 1870s. Guillaumin developed an interest in viaducts and bridges as an employee of the Paris-Orléans railway, and later, the Department of Roads and Bridges. This lyrically beautiful landscape was painted in the upper valley of the Marne in northeastern France, only a few miles from central Paris. The picture found its way to the celebrated collection of Dr. Paul Gachet, a recognition of much distinction for an artist of modest notoriety.
