ALFRED SISLEY (French/English / 1839-1899)

One of the central figures of the Impressionist movement, Alfred Sisley was born in Paris to wealthy English parents, who supported him through his art studies and early career, before the failure of his father's business left Sisley in poverty for the rest of his life. Sisley met and became friends with Monet, Renoir and Bazille in the studio of Gleyre in 1862. Like Monet, Sisley was a reluctant printmaker, and he only produced 4 etchings (all in 1890) and 2 lithographs. We have one of these original etchings, and also an interpretative etching after Sisley by Pierre-Marcel Roy.
