About the Artist
Alfred Sisley (1939-1899) was a French Impressionist painter who in 1862 joined the
studio of Charles Gleyre, which Monet, Renoir and Frederic Bazille also
attended. When Gleyre’s studio closed in 1863, Sisley went on to paint
with Monet, Renoir and Bazille. His first paintings reflect the Barbizon
school traditions but with independent style. Sisley’s paintings were
accepted for the Salons of 1866, 1868, 1870 and he was a member of the
Societe Nationale des Beaux-Arts.
