Describing Moret-sur-Loing as picturesque may seem like a cliché. But in reality, Moret has proven to be “suitable for a painting” as the definition of picturesque specifies. The Impressionist painters Monet, Renoir and particularly Sisley have found inspiration in the village. Looking back at Sisley’s paintings of Moret, it appears that not much has changed in the village since his death there in 1899. It is picturesque today much as was in the 19th Century.
