    Literature
    James Allen Scott, Where Will You Travel Next? Destinations in Paintings, 2011, p. 196, illustrated.

    Saint-Cirq-Lapopie is a medieval stronghold near Cahors and is now a member of Les Plus Beaux Villages de France ("The most beautiful villages of France") association. It became popular with artists after Henri Martin made it his home at the beginning of the 20th century. Despite his popularity and success as an artist, Martin was a reclusive person who grew disenchanted with life in Paris. His quest for a tranquil and picturesque location led him to this forgotten gem of French history. Martin's paintings from this period are his most beautiful and colorful of his oeuvre.

    Jacques Martin-Ferrières, Henri Martin's son, trained under his father and later under Frederic Cormon at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris. The present work was executed when the young artist was 25 years old and strongly influenced by his father's work. The pointillist technique is employed with great skill and layers of thick paint are superimposed in perfect chromatic harmony.
