Le Loing et Le Pont de Moret

Signed "Sisley" (lower left)
Oil on canvas 

A master of the landscape, Alfred Sisley is one of the founders of the French Impressionist style, and his works are counted alongside Monet and Renoir for their magnificent interpretations of the natural world.

Sisley was born in Paris to affluent English parents, who supported him financially until the age of 31 when his father lost his merchant trading company. His early years of financial comfort allowed Sisley to practice his art without concern. In 1860, he studied with Monet, Renoir and Bazille in the atelier of Marc-Charles Gabriel Gleyre. It was here that he learned the technique of painting en plein air to better capture the effects of light in nature. This innovative technique allowed for more vivid imagery and dynamic scenery than had never been experienced before, fascinating Sisley. By the time he first exhibited at the Salon in 1867, Sisley was a student of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot, iconic member of the Barbizon School and master of plein airpainting.

In 1870, with his father in financial ruin, Sisley's sole means of support became the sale of his paintings, which did not gain nearly the attention they received until his death in 1899. In 1880, he moved his family to a small village near Moret-sur-Loing where the Barbizon artists had worked in the early part of the century. Sisley thrived upon the serenity of this charming city, and channeling the beauty of its surrounds into his paintings. His passion for the sky, and its contrast to the rest of the environment, tends to be the central theme throughout his oeuvre.

Circa 1891
