Arts Everyday Living: Alfred Sisley, An Impressionist for All Seasons–Poetry of Earth & Sky

 

 

 

AN IMPRESSIONIST FOR ALL SEASONS

 

Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) is considered one of the leading artists of the Impressionist movement, along with his colleagues Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, and Degas, among others.  Sisley’s works of art were dominated by landscapes, reflecting his love of the then often picturesque suburbs of Paris.  His paintings are characterized by a delicacy and poetry, expressed below in his depictions of the changing seasons—the transformation from spring to summer, as well as autumn and winter.
