An 1878 oil on canvas, Snow at Louveciennes, by Alfred Sisley (1839-1899), the Franco-British impressionist painter. The artist here extends the central path of snow towards the horizon, leading the viewer's eye into the scene, an effect reinforced by the presence of the dark figure. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
