View on the Oise

The scene is probably in the neighbourhood of Daubigny's home in Auvers in France. The lack of foreshore suggests that the view was painted from 'Le Botin', a ferry which Daubigny converted into a floating studio. This painting shows the broad handling of paint which was characteristic of his later work.
