    description: <div class="description"> <u style="background-color:yellow;" class="">guilloux</u>, a modest employee at the Bibliothèque nationale de France, was a self-taught artist who exhibited paintings and drawings in a Symbolist style in fin-de-siècle Paris. Even though he used a combination of watercolor and crayon in this view of a Breton landscape, he was able to mimic the soft velvety qualities of pastel in the luminous emerald valley, the blended shadows on the hillside, and the foreground foliage.</div>
