According to Pierre Bazin, Conservateur at the Musée de Dieppe, T01999 depicts a view of the village of Petit-Appeville, Seine-Maritime, France. The village is situated approximately one kilometre north of the River Scie (at Pourville), and five kilometres west of Dieppe.
The verso shows a landscape, presumably of 1920, which has been largely erased by the artist. To the left-hand side of the canvas an avenue of poplars is just visible, and a large area of yellow along the base of the canvas suggests that a cornfield was once present.
