Pierre Wittmer writes of the significance which Yerres held for Caillebotte, "The Yerres river—thanks to its location and scenic attraction—...was as important to Gustave Caillebotte as the Epte was to Claude Monet or Mont Saint-Victoire was to Paul Cézanne. The artist adapts the reality of his world to his needs. Gustave Caillebotte gave the sites in which he lived a new and original and wholly personal dimension. His rendering of rural life evokes its perennial and cyclic nature, always leaving us with a sense of the rhythm of passing days and seasons" (Pierre Wittmer, Caillebotte and His Garden at Yerres, New York, 1991, p. 28).
