Contribution to Impressionism

Alfred Sisley was a pillar of the Impressionist movement, famous for his ability to capture the transient beauty of landscapes. Unlike his contemporaries, Sisley devoted himself almost exclusively to landscapes, a choice that defined his work. His paintings, often inspired by the Seine-et-Marne, Île-de-France and Loing regions, are distinguished by their sensitivity to light variations and their finesse in capturing atmospheric nuances.

Sisley’s Work: A Celebration of Nature

Sisley favored plein-air painting, which enabled him to explore the changing effects of light on nature. His works, such as La Inondation à Port-Marly and Route de Saint-Germain à Marly, illustrate his mastery of sky, water and vegetation, composing scenes of exceptional harmony and tranquility.
