Selmersheim-Desgrange lived and loved the area around St. Tropez – and she replicated the relaxed atmosphere, the intense light, the brilliant earthen colors, dark tree silhouettes, and azure seas in her work as can be seen in this composition.
Signac and Selmersheim-Desgrange lived in a small house in the South of France – “La Hune” and throughout her association with Signac, Jeanne was happy and most contented to stay in the shadows of “her great master.”
