It supplies a view across a canal and the poplars on its board towards the historical center of Arles, with the towers of Saint-Trophime and College St Charles to the left, contrasted by recent building of the Caserne Calvin, housing the Zouave Regiment, to the right.
Van Gogh was acquainted with several of the Zouave officers, painted one in native uniform, and his portrait of Lieutenant Milliet is known as The Lover.
Poplar trees still stand along the canal, today, but the orchards and the Caserne are gone.
