Le Parc des Lions a Port-Marly
960 x 1189 • 483 KB
Port-Marly is a village on the banks of the Seine. Sisley lived there. Corot preferred to paint nature that inspired poetry than to render it realistically as Courbet did. A pioneer of painting outdoors 'en plein air', he was admired by the impressionists, for whom he was a constant reference. This composition is painted in a range of greens with a few hints of red.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
