A characteristic view of the river Oise by Delpy, the low viewpoint, motionless water and suffusion of soft clear light all contribute to the mood of pastoral tranquillity. The unusually wide format relative to the height adds to a sense of the landscape opening out before the spectator in a romantic sweep of forest and water-meadow. This is a compositional tool of Charles-François Daubigny’s, which the younger Delpy must have learnt from his father. It is the viewpoint which the two elder painters would have taken from the deck of Daubigny’s boat, Le botin, and it may well be that the Delpys, father and son, later acquired their own boat for painting expeditions.
