Alfred Sisley: The watering place at Marly-le-Roi

French impressionist painter Alfred Sisley painted The watering place at Marly-le-Roi around 1875. Marly-le-Roi in Western Paris was the location of the Château de Marly, a royal residence built by Sun King Louis XIV in 1679.

Château de Marly ceased being a Royal Palace after the French Revolution in x and was sold to a businessman shortly afterward and turned into a factory. It was demolished after the factory shut down in 1806. Sisley lived close by to Marly-le-Roi and painted this picture in his 40s.

Alfred Sisley’s The watering place at Marly-le-Roi is in the National Gallery in London after being purchased in 1926.
