The wall of angular, jutting rock formations in this painting may represent a quarry, with the cuttings revealing geological strata. While the hillside is somewhere in Cézanne’s native Provence, the specific location has not been conclusively identified.
Stylistically, the painting relates to scenes of the landscape around Aix-en-Provence that Cézanne was painting in the mid-1880s.
