Painter, lithographer and draftsman, Maximilien Luce was born in Paris on March 13, 1858. In the 1880s he met and established friendly contacts with many Parisian painters, including Camille Pissarro (1830-1903), George-Pierre Seurat (1859-1891) and Paul Signac (1863-1935). Together with them he was one of the founders of Neo-Impressionism (Pointillism). [1]

Alfred Sisley

(1839-1899)

British painter. Sisley did not live to see his talent recognized, however, a year after his death, his painting "Flood at Port-Marly" (Orsay Museum - Paris) reached a high bidding.

Sisley was exclusively a landscape painter, who, in the line of Corot, and with Claude Monet, best sought and succeeded in expressing the most subtle nuances of nature in Impressionist landscapes. [2]
