Excerpt from Brooklyn Museum:

Alfred Sisley
Flood at Moret (Inondation à Moret), 1879

European Art
In 1859 Oller studied in Charles Gleyre’s studio with Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, and other future Impressionists. Oller and Sisley developed as artists along similar paths—both embraced plein air painting and captured fleeting effects of light and atmosphere with quick, broken brushstrokes—although Oller’s work in the 1870s was still more Realist than Impressionist.

Here, Sisley depicts the landscape of Moret on the river Loing. Oller often spent periods of time working in the outskirts of Paris with his colleagues and may well have visited Sisley there.

En 1859, Oller se formó en el taller de Charles Gleyre con Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley y otros futuros impresionistas. Oller y Sisley seguían caminos similares en su desarrollo como artistas: ambos adoptaron la pintura al aire libre y capturaron los efectos pasajeros de luz y atmósfera, con pincelazos rápidos y fragmentados, a pesar de que la obra de Oller en la década de 1870 era todavía más realista que impresionista.

En esta obra, Sisley representa el paisaje de Moret en el río Loing. Oller a menudo pasaba periodos de tiempo trabajando en las afueras de París con sus colegas y es muy probable que haya visitado a Sisley ahí.
