Gauguin's glowing colours convey the exotic character of the Martinique landscape. His brushstrokes are visible, but fuse into flatter areas of colour. The composition is finely balanced and carefully structured. It is the finest of a series of landscape paintings Gauguin produced in Martinique in 1887.

He had travelled there from Panama before ill health forced his return to France. Gauguin dreamed of escaping from urban 'civilization' to a tropical paradise where life was mysterious, sensuous and closer to nature. His plans materialised a few years later when, in 1891, he left for Tahiti.

Paul Gauguin (7 June 1848 – 8 May 1903) was a French Post-Impressionist artist. Unappreciated until after his death, Gauguin is now recognized for his experimental use of colour and Synthetist style that were distinct from Impressionism.

Toward the end of his life, he spent ten years in French Polynesia. The paintings from this time depict people or landscapes from that region.
