This vast "Landscape" (oil on canvas cm. 128 x 168) present a composition balanced between the bushy clusters of trees in the foreground on the right, and the urban area of buildings of classic inspiration on the bottom behind a stream and in front of bluish mountains.
We find here one of its typical landscapes, Italianized in a way (because the painter never went in Italy) who shows that the painter had studied the work of Chick and Dughet. Millet had had, indeed, the opportunity to study them closely in Paris when these masters had sent it their works. The painter had settled down there, very young, in 1657 or ' 59.
