(1839 - 1899)
This is one of my favourite Impressionist paintings; what a lovely cool place to rest and ponder ones thoughts and dreams...under the shade of leafy trees, amongst the many beautiful greens of the plants and grasses, imagine their sweet fragrance as it floats on the air. To listen to the water as it flows gently by, its mirror surface only being interrupted by the ripple of some small insect or occasional curious fish.
Alfred Sisley was a French landscape painter, born of English parents in Paris, France.
He was one of the founders of the Impressionist School of Painting along with Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
