Alfred Sisley, who lived between 1839 and 1899, was born in Paris to wealthy English parents.
Although his wealthy English parents intended him for commerce, Sisley began painting as an amateur and met Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Jean-Frédéric Bazille at Charles Gleyre's studio in 1862. The Franco-German War of 1870-71 brought financial devastation to the Sisley family and caused Sisley to temporarily flee to London. During this time of crisis, she decided to pursue her full-time career in painting.
Like Pissarro, Sisley from the very beginning devoted himself mainly to the landscapes and vivid representations of the village streets or the rivers of Paris. Sisley's landscapes are known for their extraordinary ability to capture the sense of atmosphere and light, and this effect was combined with the large, impressive sky that was almost always a central feature of his paintings. He is a purely landscape painter, most sought after and best at expressing the finest nuances of nature in Impressionist landscapes. Sisley's early works were influenced by the realism of Courbet, Corot, and Daubigny. One art critic wrote of the year he died: "It was Corot, the clear and silvery Corot, that impressed him, always broad, deep, eternal, dreamy Corot., Calm and sensitive ... ".
Alfred Sisley Style, Painting Technique
While Sisley's work is quite beautiful to the modern eye, his work (like all Impressionists) was quite radical in his time, and his focus on modern urban life, his view of nature as a valuable subject, and his sketchy, "impressionist" style were a new challenge for an industrialized world. were the distinguishing features of his painting style.
Sisley's sensitivity to the intricacies of natural landscapes was striking, allowing him to create landscapes that vibrate simultaneously with seemingly contradictory feelings of physical realism and dreamlike sensuality.
Among the Impressionists, Sisley was overshadowed by Monet, although his work most closely resembled that of Camille Pissarro. Described by art historian Robert Rosenblum as having "an almost general character, an impersonal textbook idea of a perfect Impressionist painting", his work strongly evokes atmosphere and the sky is always very impressive. His concentration on landscape subjects was the most consistent among the Impressionists.
