Cézanne was a profound influence on Vlaminck from 1908. This composition of 1912-13 probably derives from Cézanne's Bridge over the Marne at Créteil (Pushkin Museum, Moscow) of 1893-95. It was purchased by Gwendoline Davies from the Polish-born Parisian dealer Leopold Zborowski in 1919.

Check the direction of the brush strokes on these three Vlaminck paintings. He must have been a leftie.
