Created in 1924, this original color lithograph is hand signed by Maurice de Vlaminck (Paris, 1876- Rueil-la-Gadeliere, 1958) in pencil in the lower right margin; also signed in the stone in black in the lower right 'Vlaminck.' This piece is a A State II (of II) impression with the signature; numbered from the edition of 25 signed works in the lower left margin. This piece is printed on Chine Volant by Landelle, Maison Duchâtel, Paris and published by Galierie de Peintres Graveurs, E. Frapier, Paris.
Capturing the simple, naturalistic beauty of a small country village, Vlaminck depicts a stunning pastoral scene. The viewer feels as though he or she is on the road, walking through a quaint village. Neatly planted fields and crisp white buildings line the dirt road while trees dot the distant landscape. The larger structure to the right with a vibrant red roof appears perhaps as a schoolhouse, yet its inhabitants are not depicted in the scene. The entire piece relays a sense of quiet and calm, providing a breath of fresh air for the viewer, who almost feels transported within the scene itself, strolling along the road beneath the clear blue sky.
