Bonnard probably painted this scene depicting a road on the way to Nantes, a port city on France's Atlantic coast, while touring Brittany by car in the summer of 1929. Bonnard was a founding member of the Nabis (Hebrew for prophets), a group of artists who formed in Paris during the 1890s. Inspired by Paul Gauguin, they emphasized inventive, decorative design and color liberated from natural appearances.
