Label TextBeau Blanc, St. Jeannet shows Hartley’s continued interest in not only European styles but also European locations, as he painted the scene upon visiting the French countryside. The fresh colors and solid, monumental quality of the mountain reflect Hartley’s interest in the work of renowned French artist Paul Cézanne.
