La Seine au Pont de Sèvres, Billancourt 


signed Sisley. (lower right) 

oil on canvas

27.4 by 41.1cm., 10¾ by 16⅛in.

Framed: 45.4 by 51.2cm., 17⅞ by 23½in.

Painted circa 1877.  

The canvas is lined. UV inspection reveals an uneven varnish through which the UV cannot fully penetrate, however, there appears to be a retouching above the first arch of the bridge to the left of the composition possibly relating to a minor repaired tear. There are some further small retouchings to the extreme edges of the canvas that do not fluoresce. There are a few fine lines of craquelure in places and some minor frame abrasion to parts of the extreme edges. This work is in overall good condition.
