The view in this painting has been identified as from the Col de la Moreno at the foot of the Puy-de-Dôme in the Chaîne de Puy mountains in the Auvergne. Rousseau spent several months in this region in 1830 and in a series of studies produced during this visit he explored the natural effects of light and weather on the rugged landscape.
