OIL PAINTING:  Banks of Saint-Mammes, 1884

Sisley resolutely turned his back on their social life. He concentrated instead on undisturbed or only distantly animated aspects of his surroundings.

There are many moments of private leisure - there are trains, river banks, factory chimneys, pleasure boats and barges .
