Description & Technical information

This representation by Sisley dates from his visit to Moret-sur-Loing. Sisley made this place his permanent home in 1889 and dedicated these years to the study of the variety of landscapes as they changed from season to
season, reminiscent of Claude Monet and his paintings in series. This spring landscape is very similar to the painting of the former Christian Otto Ziesenis collection, arranged in the same format and dated from the same year.
