Oil on Canvas

Michel Robin charmingly captures a tranquil morning on the banks of a canal in this exquisite oil painting. Today a popular stopping point for visitors on tours of the French rivers, Mailly-le-Ville is situated on the River Yonne, a tributary to the Seine which flows south east from Paris into Burgundy. With the town as a backdrop, Michel Robin captures the stillness of the canal in the unblemished reflection in the foreground. Animated by the fisherman, his wife and young child on the riverbank, the composition perfectly captures the tranquillity of everyday life on the banks of the Yonne.
