Alfred Sisley (1839 -- 99) was one of the greatest landscape painters of the nineteenth century and a leading figure in the Impressionist movement. His celebrated snow scenes of the Paris suburbs, his views of the flooded Seine at Pont-Marly and the colourful regattas on the Thames achieve a superb tonal balance and poetry of mood, while also giving a lively depiction of their subjects. Richard Shone brings a fresh eye and an intimate knowledge of the Ile de France to this, the most detailed and authoritative survey yet to appear of Sisley's life and works. With a wealth of illustrations and an absorbing text, and now reiussued as an attractively priced paperback, this book reveals Sisley as an artist of seductive power and originality.
