Bertin was a pupil of the Royal Academy in Paris until 1788 the age of eighteen, when he joined Henri de Valenciennes (1750-1819), the leading exponent of en plein air sketching in the neo-classical period. He exhibited regularly at the Salon between 1793 until his death in 1842. His talents were such that he was awarded the Médaille de Prémiere in 1808 and the Légion d'Honneur in 1817.

He travelled in Italy from 1806-1808, painting landscapes in the Claudian neo-classical style of his master Valenciennes and infusing his compositions with naturalistic detail and colour. This study of a walled garden possibly dates from this period and demonstrates how he came to have one of the most influential and fashionable studios and also be master to many prominent pupils. Several were winners of the Prix de Rome including J-H Marmont de Barmont (see catalogue no. 20) A-F Boisselier, J-L-P Coignet, J-B-C Corot, A-E Michallon and J-C-J Remond. Bertin's later influence is seen in the Barbizon School and his works are now found in major museum and private collections throughout the world.
