Like many of his contemporaries, Michallon frequently painted foaming water rushing over rocks, as well as rocky grottoes and crags, both in France and Italy. Michallon has used rectangular patches of colour to suggest the rock face, a range of green and blue tones and quick touches of white paint to capture the swift-moving water.
