Description

Recently built, state-of-the-art bridges—emblematic of modernity—recur as motifs in Sisley’s paintings of the 1870s and early 1880s. The cast-iron and stone suspension bridge at Villeneuve-la-Garenne, constructed in 1844 to connect the village with the Paris suburb of Saint-Denis, can be seen from a distance in a work of spring 1872 (Fogg Art Museum, Cambridge, Mass.). Shortly thereafter, Sisley executed this close-up, dramatically angled view, showing holiday makers on the river and along the shore. Flat strokes of high-keyed color—notably in the reflections on the water’s surface—capture the fleeting effect of bright summer sunshine.
