This landscape painting depicts the artist's preference not only for special colors, but also for unusual perspectives.
The view here is from the gardens and the forests on the outskirts of the skyline of Paris.

 

Cariot is one of the few self-taught artists among the famous Post-Impressionists.

Cariot first belonged to the circle of the Pointillist Signac and bacame in 1903 a member of the Societé des Independants in Paris.

His paintings appealed to art lovers by their freshness of color, the special lighting and a special "delicacy" (Bénézit). With growing success, he then also put in the Societe National des Beaux-Arts, as well as the Salon d'Automne and the Salon d'Hiver.
