Millet, who trained in France and travelled to England and Holland, studied the work of Poussin and made his reputation with austere classical landscapes in his manner. Some were engraved at an early date, providing virtually the only documentation for his work. The chronology of his paintings is difficult to establish. This painting depicts a richly varied, extensive landscape, with a solitary traveller on the left providing a romantic note.
