Sisley

  • Paperback
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.

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.
Richard Shone has been Editor of the Burlington Magazine since 2003 and is the author of several books on nineteenth- and twentieth-century art.

'Richard Shone's Sisley is a work of distinction: knowledgeable, thoughtful and very well written. This is the book to buy.' (Daily Telegraph)
