DESCRIPTION:  Considerable research has been done on the work and much documentation is available. Pigment analysis was done by the Fogg Museum, and X rays by Giles Perault, Paris. The paint site has been identified and confirmed as the Val de Hermeil, at le Chou, on the banks of the river Oise. This location was chronicled by Higgonet, Denis Rouart, Shennan, Bona et al, as the site of her summer works in 1863. She destroyed all the river scenes except this one which was exhibited at the Salon des Beaux Arts in 1864. Even to-day, the likeness of the work to the Val of Hermeil (after 142 years) is astonishing.
She painted this work at the age of 21 while under the tutelage of Corot.
