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.

One of the best books on Sisley, with lots of nice images of his paintings and environment, highly recommended to the art lover of Impressionism.
