Alfred Sisley (Paris 1839 - Moret-sur-Loing 1899), British painter. While living in Paris, he met Monet, Renoir and Jean-Frédéric Bazille.

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. [1]
