Alfred Sisley

Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) was a prominent British Impressionist landscape painter who spent most of his life working in France. Born in Paris to affluent English parents, Sisley initially pursued a business career before dedicating himself to painting. He studied at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts and was greatly influenced by the works of Camille Corot and the Barbizon school. Sisley was a key figure in the Impressionist movement, participating in the first Impressionist exhibition in 1874 alongside Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Camille Pissarro. His paintings are characterized by a keen sensitivity to the effects of light and atmosphere on the landscape, often depicting scenes along the Seine and Loing rivers. Sisley's use of loose, visible brushstrokes and his focus on capturing the fleeting qualities of nature exemplify the Impressionist approach. Despite his talent and the respect of his peers, Sisley struggled financially throughout his career and gained little recognition during his lifetime. However, his contributions to the development of Impressionism and his masterful renderings of the French countryside have solidified his place as one of the most significant landscape painters of the 19th century.
