Louveciennes, heights of Marly - Alfred Sisley-1873 - Orsay Museum

The half-slope farm shown on this painting was originally a forge for the maintenance of the machine de Marly under Louis XIV . By a series of diagonals: the route of the path, the roof and the barriers, the ridge of the trees, Sisley brings us to the Seine valley, vaporous in the background. The exuberance of the vegetation, the calm of the places, are characteristic of the painter's work, "which only ever represents limpid and serene works".
