Daubigny brought his characteristic light touch, luminous palette, and clean compositional style to bear on this river view, apparently taken between sunset and twilight. Beginning in the 1850s, Daubigny routinely painted outdoors, and captured numerous views of the Seine, Marne, and Oise Rivers aboard a boat employed for such excursions—a practice that later inspired Claude Monet in developing such paintings as Morning on the Seine, in the Amherst College collection.
