In this landscape, Emile Bernard put his innovative technique into practice, rendering a country landscape with several outlined horizontal planes and bringing a vertical element to the composition by adding a few trees. Bernard, a founder of Synthetism and inventor of a radical new aesthetic, later returned to classicism in his work.
