In this gallery, we showcase 30 works by Alfred Sisley (1839-1899), the Franco-British painter who was one of the founders of impressionism. The selection here is presented in chronological sequence to show the artist's career progression. Sisley was most interested in capturing landscapes, particularly of the River Seine, bridges, avenues of trees, and snow scenes. This selection includes his most famous works, views of the places he lived, and several lesser-known canvases.
These effects of light which have an almost material expression in nature must be rendered in material fashion on the canvas.
