From Pablo Picasso, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt van Rijn, and Gerhard Richter to ancient sculpture, French Impressionism and Baroque painting, the Museum Barberini embraces all styles and eras, and aims to continually offer new perspectives on art.

In 1882 Alfred Sisley moved to Moret-sur-Loing, a town to the south of Paris, where he explored the landscape that was crisscrossed by rivers and canals.
The wooden construction in the foreground likely belongs to one of the boatyards that dotted the Loing Canal, which was used for industrial purposes.
The detail of this construction adds a modern element to the timeless scenery.

Alfred Sisley painted the blooming lilacs in his garden from the window of his studio. The cropping seems random, as is often the case in photography.
The blue-violet color that attracted him here is also seen in the façades and the roofs of the surrounding houses. Even the woman and child on the garden path are included in this harmony of the color blue.

The expansive sky and river dominate this composition, with fresh blue and white dominating the picture’s overall color scheme.
The red roof of a wooden boatyard marks a bright accent on the right.
Several people stand together on the left riverbank, where they have just been brought over by a ferryman.
Such details are typical elements in Alfred Sisley’s landscapes, which capture a particular moment in time.
