Alfred Sisley is now recognised as one of the great landscape painters of the 19th century, and a leading figure in the Impressionist movement. He divided his time between France and England, and the 55 colour illustrations in this book include the celebrated snow scenes of the Paris suburbs, his views of the flooded Seine at Port-Marly, and his paintings of the colourful regattas on the Thames which Kenneth Clark described as embodying "the perfect moment of Impressionism".
Richard Shone has completely updated his essay, first published in 1979, and selected new colour plates and added extensive commentaries on the illustrations to make this book an ideal introduction to the work of Alfred Sisley.
Includes 88 illustrations, 55 in colour.
