This atmospheric watercolour is likely to be a view of a lake in the valley of the Auvergne - possibly the Lac de Guéry in Puy-de-Dôme - and may be dated to c.1833. An analogous landscape watercolour of what may be the same view is in the Bruyas collection of the Musée Fabre in Montpellier, while another was exhibited in Paris in 1982. Another related watercolour by Huet was formerly in the Pierre Miquel collection and appeared on the art market in Paris in 2004.
