When this painting was shown in the first Impressionist exhibition of 1874, Sisley escaped the scathing criticism leveled by journalists at Monet, Cézanne, and other painters of the new "Impressionist" group. Described as the most harmonious of the artists represented, Sisley was praised for his exquisite landscapes that conveyed "so completely, so perfectly, the physical sensation of atmosphere, of being out in the open air."
