A student at the Beaux-Arts in Lyon, then at the Beaux Arts in Paris, Claude Barriot was a student of Charles Gleyre, Jean-Léon Gérôme and Jules Lefebvre. He exhibited in Lyon from 1865 then in Paris and Lyon from 1888. He painted outdoor figures, landscapes, outdoor scenes and motifs taken from the shores of the lakes of Northern Italy, Switzerland. and the South of France as well as the navies. His submissions to the various salons were always noticed. He is a very popular painter in the eyes of the public. He also painted decorations for the Saint-Pierre de Vaise church in Lyon and made mosaics for the crypt of Saint Nizier de Lyon. The landscape presented here represents a village, probably from the south of France given the light, the colors and the architecture of the houses, animated by the three characters. A woman wearing a hat, wearing an apron, holding a basket in her left hand, walks through the alleys of the village, watched by two children on the doorstep of a house.
Works by Claude Barriot can be found at the Paul-Dini Museum in Villefranche sur Saône.
