Louise Arc-Vallette (1861-1933) was born in Saumur as the daughter of the Archambault family. She began her artistic training as a student of Thirion, P. Vauthier and A. de Richemont. She became a member of the Société des artistes français, which was founded in Paris in 1881. In 1905 she won the 3rd class medal at the Paris Salons and was already mentioned with praise. She was mainly based on the classic landscape painting of the 19th century and painted large decorative formats. In later works her application of paint becomes impasto. She creates her landscapes and flower pieces in Longué and Paris.
The blooming summer meadow is one of her lively flower pieces. The fresh green of the grass, which corresponds to the red of the poppy and the pink flowers, shines in the freshest tones. The meadow extends to some trees, which, illuminated by the summer light, show a path to a typical French stone house. When visiting the park, Arc-Vallette focused on the flowering plants, which spread out in contrasts like a sea of shapes and colors.
