Credit : Chemin de la Machine, Louveciennes

On this painting, the clarity of the sky accentuates the impression of cold contrasts with the brown tones of the ground that reinforces the light.
The road that runs perpendicular to the surface of the painting gives the illusion of a three-dimensional representation. The impression of depth is reinforced by the row of trees, punctuating the trunks and their shadows with vertical and horizontal lines.
The climb creates an off-center vanishing point, towards a plunging view of the sunny background, encouraging the viewer "to follow the path that the painter indicates to him and to see first of all what has seized the performer" (A Sisley).
