In the summer of 1889 Renoir rented a house in Aix-en-Provence from Paul Cézanne’s brother-in-law. The artists were close friends for some thirty years, and the influence of the extraordinary Cézanne is strongly evoked in Renoir’s work, not only in this landscape watercolor but in the many paintings made that summer in Aix.
