9780714838922: Sisley

Alfred Sisley (1839-99) was one of the most prominent and historically significant landscape painters of the nineteenth century and a leading figure in the Impressionist movement. His celebrated snow scenes of the Paris suburbs, and his views of the flooded Seine at Pont-Marly and the colourful regattas on the Thames achieve a superb tonal balance and poetic resonance, 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 overview ever to be compiled of Sisley's life and works. With an abundant wealth of illustrations and an absorbing text - now reiussued as an attractively priced paperback - this book reveals Sisley as an artist of seductive power and originality.

From the Publisher:

A survey of the life and work of Alfred Sisley, one of the leading exponents of the Impressionist movement. The text examines how Sisley's painting life was devoted to the landscape. The author examines the tonal balance of such celebrated paintings as the snow-scenes of the Paris suburbs, views of the flooded Seine at Port-Marly and the colourful regattas on the Thames. The author recognizes that full recognition for the artist and his work only began after his relatively early death and argues that even now, his work is unjustifiably neglected. In studying Sisley's artistic development, the artist's English nationality, early career, struggle to earn a living, and secluded later years are examined.

From the Back Cover:

Selected new colour plates and added extensive commentaries on the illustrations to make this book an ideal introduction to the work of Alfred Sisley.
