La Maison Maria, close to the Château Noir, back in the day, was one of the houses that represented the architectural style from Provence, so this painting is a big representation of the aesthetics of the time. The location from where the painting was observed is now a forest, but back in the day when it was painted, in 1895, it was an open area.
The painting has a nearly squared format and a limited color palette. There are many subtleties in the choice of colors, turning the piece into a vibrant and charming artwork. The spectator is looking at the Maison Maria from a turn on the road. Cézanne did several works using this type of layout. With this design, he could put the houses as the main subject in evidence on the horizon line and at the same time create an ambiance where you could understand what was the countryside of France back then.
There is a road in the foreground, which its perspective places the viewer close to the houses in the back. The surroundings are covered in green vegetation and some dark old tree trunks. There are also some grey stones on the sides of the road. It is possible to see tire paths on the road, so one can assume it would be a busy or at least populated space. The vegetation is composed of diagonal green and yellow brushstrokes. There are several colors and shades in the artwork, but all of them are limited to these warm earthy tones of green and yellow, except for the brown and blue that create the grey of the stones.
Then, the yellow house with a red brick roof can be seen. The two-story-high house has no windows with an exception with a small rectangular opening near the roof of the second floor. From the lack of windows and openings, the viewer can notice that its the back-side.
The beautiful characteristic of this painting is that, despite it being painted with a limited color palette and having subtle lighting, it creates a contrast between the warm hues of nature and the houses with the cold blue tones of the sky and the mountain.

If you are planning to frame your painting yourself, use an existing frame, or frame it locally, you may choose to order your painting with a stretching service, meaning that it will arrive mounted on wooden bars.
If you're considering not framing your painting at all, you may opt for a Gallery Wrap. The term Gallery Wrap refers to the way the canvas is stretched, which is by wrapping it around thick stretcher bars, about 1.5 inch thick, with the canvas being secured to the back rather than the sides of those bars.
