Lunois is credited with reviving the nearly-forgotten lithographic wash technique, in which ink is applied to the stone with a brush to produce a watercolor effect. This lithograph was inspired by his time living in the Dutch fishing village of Volendam in the late 1880s. Charmed by the picturesque environment and by its inhabitants’ seeming removal from modern life, the artist produced a number of lithographs of Dutch subjects, as well as others inspired by his travels in North Africa and Spain.
