This pleasing landscape study with small bridge at center by French pictorialist Paul Naudot was taken near Moret, France. Once known as Moret-sur-Loing, according to Wikipedia, the area:
is a former commune in the Seine-et Marne department in the Île-de-France region in north-central France. On 1 January 2015, Moret-sur-Loing and Écuelles merged becoming one commune called Orvanne, which merged into the new commune Moret-Loing-et-Orvanne on 1 January 2016.(1.) The town was a source of inspiration for (the impressionist painters) (Claude) Monet, (Pierre-Auguste) Renoir and (Alfred) Sisley.
