Los Angeles, 1990, pp. 134, 151 n. 26, p. 320, colorpl. 143, compares this picture to a postcard of the same view near Vlaminck and Derain's shared studio on the Île de Chatou, at the base of the Pont de Chatou, facing downriver with the "grander riverside houses of Chatou at the right" [see Ref. Rewald 1989]; comments that Vlaminck's paintings of Chatou reflect his status as a resident, not a tourist, who "obviously loved the places he painted, with the love of someone who can be pleased to see the same things under old as well as new lights".

Rewald 1989 and Klein 1990, identifying the site as the place where the bridge spans the Île de Chatou and the village of Rueil and comparing it to postcards of this smaller arm of the Seine on the Rueil side; notes that the sailboat in the foreground, called a "Chatou monotype," and the tugboat were types that "navigated the Seine at this time".
