Ker Xavier Roussel and Marie Vuillard moved their family to a house in Etang-la-Ville, a small town near Versailles, which they called La Montagne . This lovely, fresh watercolor records the various greens of a corner of the garden, just outside the door of the house, where the Roussels would sit to entertain their guests as can be seen in Vuillard’s painting of the same period, Garden Scene , 1900 (VII- 106 ), one example of several paintings showing variations of this view.
