Impressionism   •   Alfred Sisley @ Wikipedia

The son of English immigrants, who never received due recognition during his lifetime, is today considered one of the most important representatives of French Impressionism.

Born in Paris in 1839, Sisley devoted himself exclusively to painting after completing a commercial education in London from the age of twenty-three. He studied in the studio of Charles Gleyre , where he met Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir , with whom he had a lifelong friendship. After his family lost their assets in the Franco-German War, Sisley was forced to earn a living starting in 1870 by selling his works.

Influenced by the style of the English landscape painter William Turner and John Constable , he developed in the following years nonetheless to one of the most important pioneers of French Impressionism. At the center of his motives were the banks of the Seine and the villages of Île-de-France and the forest of Fontainebleau, which was very popular among the artists of his time. Characteristic of Sisley's painting is a subtle color scheme and a closed contours, which distinguishes his style from the dissolute forms of his friend Monet, with whom he still likes to be compared today.

Alfred Sisley became famous for his portrayal of the Canal Saint Martin in Paris, the aqueduct in Port Marly and the bridge of Moret sur Loing, the small town where he died in 1899 at the age of 60 years. © Meisterdrucke
