The Comité Sisley has confirmed the authenticity of this work; it is presented jointly by the Cabinet Brame & Lorenceau and the Cabinet Ottavi. At the beginning of 1880, Sisley and his family settled in Veneux-Nadon, a village near Moret-sur-Loing. The artist refused to participate in the fifth Impressionist exhibition because he hoped to exhibit at the Salon and sell a few paintings there and wrote to Theodore Duret: "I am tired of vegetating as I have done for so long. The time has come for me to make a decision. Our exhibitions have served, it is true, to make us known and in that they have been very useful, but I do not think that we should isolate ourselves any longer. The time is still far off when we will be able to do without the prestige that attaches to official exhibitions. I am therefore resolved to send to the Salon." However, he was not admitted, while Monet and Renoir were. Fortunately, Durand-Ruel again assured Sisley of his support and he signed a new agreement with him.
