Moustiers-Sainte-Marie is a historic village in Provence. Its picturesque nature would have inspired Knighton-Hammond to get out his watercolours and paint. The resultant view of the village is high up in the background. The buildings are bathed in sunlight and painted as an impression rather than in detail. The landscape and trees in the foreground are typically Mediterranean cypresses and olives.
