John Golding, "Cubism":

"Braque's paintings [at La Roche Guyon] show a continuation of the fragmentation of form and the elaborate surface treatment already seen in Harbor in Normandy. The brush-strokes have become smaller and more numerous, and perspective is distorted to such an extent that the buildings occasionally appear to be composed of completely dislocated or dissociated walls and roofs. The [paintings] are softer, shapes and objects tend to fuse and merge more, and there is almost a suggestion of the atmospheric shimmer of light."
