From Cleveland Museum of Art:
This painting depicts the valley of the Arc River that runs southeast of Cézanne's home in Aix-en-Provence. Organized patterns of color and brushwork indicate that Cézanne was interested in structuring his visual sensations through directional brushstrokes and patterns of warm and cool colors. He also created a more unified composition by maintaining color intensity throughout, rather than allowing tones to diminish as they fade into the distance.
