DESCRIPTION:  Sisley’s fascination with water, and his desire to fuse the timeless elements of water, land and sky into a quasi-abstract, mystical whole is nowhere more wonderfully demonstrated than in this major painting of a glorious, broad sweep of river dissolving into trees and sky, on a perfect summer’s day.

Sisley’s spirit seems to soar in this marvellously free and beautiful painting, as though his brush was moving in absolute harmony with the joyously uplifting Scherzo from Beethoven’s Septet:

It was this gay, singing phrase which captivated me, he told a friend, it called forth a response in me from the very beginning and I sing it continually, humming to myself as I work.
