Alfred Sisley

Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) was born in Paris of English parents. His merchant father sent him to London to embark on a business career, but he returned to Paris in 1862 and devoted himself full-time to art. The painters Camille Corot and Gustave Courbet were important inspirations for Sisley's carefully structured early work, but his style became looser and more colorful under the influence of Renoir, Monet, and Pissarro. Sisley exhibited with the Impressionists in 1874, 1876, 1877, and 1882. Throughout his career, Sisley painted almost exclusively landscapes and stayed faithful to the original Impressionist approach to painting. Unlike many of his colleagues, Sisley always struggled financially and prices for his work rose only after his death.
