Alfred Sisley was a French Impressionist painter, primarily of landscapes, and a friend of Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
Alfred Sisley was born on October 30, 1839, in Paris, France. The Franco-German War financially ruined the Sisley family, but Sisely still decided to make painting his full-time career and stuggled with poverty for the rest of his life. He was an associate of Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Sisley died in Moret-sur-Loing, France, in 1899.
Early Life and Influences
The consummate landscape painter, Alfred Sisley was born to English parents on October 30, 1839, in Paris, France. In 1857, he made his first trip to London, England, where he was inspired by the work of such English landscape painters as J.M.W. Turner, John Constable and Richard Parkes Bonington.
Sisley joined other Impressionist artists such as Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Pierre-Auguste Renoir in flouting the strict methods of the École des Beaux-Arts (formerly the Académie des Beaux-Arts, Paris) in favor of a more naturalistic and realistic portrayal of his subjects.
