Summary

Alfred Sisley was French impressionist landscape painter, born in Paris to English parents. He was a founding member of the Impressionist group. Sisley produced some 900 oil paintings, about 100 pastels and many other drawings, although he only lived to be 59 years old. He never turn aside into figure painting and, unlike Renoir and Pissarro, never found that Impressionism did not fulfill his artistic needs. Among the Impressionists Sisley has been overshadowed by Monet, although his work most resembles that of Camille Pissarro. Influenced by his friends Renoir and Monet in his selection of colors, Sisley was less daring than Monet in his use of the "rainbow palette" and closer to the Barbizon School tradition.
