Trouillebert is best known for his landscapes, painted en plein air, both in and around Paris.
In the present painting, Trouillebert takes as his subject the château in the town of Romorantin, shielded by trees and seen
from the opposite bank of the river Sauldre. Trouillebert was a frequent visitor to the town after his friend, Philippe Emile Jullien(1845-1912), became the Department representative for Loir-et-Cher in 1881.
This work will be included in the next supplement of Paul Désiré Trouillebert: catalogue raisonné of the painted work, being prepared by Thomas Maier and Bernd Mullerschoen.
