Link to this object

About the time this work was painted, Le Sidaner's art was compared by a French critic with the music of his countryman and exact contemporary Claude Debussy. The painting's subtle, almost monochromatic coloring, with daubing brushstrokes creating a soft, flickering play of light over surfaces, is certain reminiscent of Debussy's dappled tonal effects.
