 SISLEY, ALFRED (1839-1899), was an impressionist artist best known for his landscape paintings. Sisley captured a variety of moods in his landscapes, ranging from cheerfulness to melancholy. His best pictures are delicately painted and reveal a more spacious, airy feeling than those of his fellow impressionists. Sisley particularly excelled in portraying snowy and misty scenes. Sisley was born in Paris of English parents. In thè early 1860's, he studied in thè Paris studio of thè Swiss artist Charles Gleyre. There, Sisley met thè future impressionists Jean Frédéric Bazille, Claude Monet, and Pierre Auguste Renoir. Sisley's early pictures emphasized dark browns and greens. By 1870, he was using lighter colors and was painting more spontaneously. Sisley did his best work between 1870 and 1880.
