Alfred Sisley (1839–1899)

Alfred Sisley met Renoir, Bazille and Monet while studying at Gleyre’s studio. Deeply impressed by Monet’s innovations he later worked with him at Argenteuil. Sisley showed at the Salon des Refusés and at four Impressionist exhibitions between 1874 and 1882. It was only after his death that he began to receive due recognition for his work and for his role in the development of Impressionism.
