Glossy pictorial boards with matching DJ. Alfred Sisley, born in 1839, is often referred to as the 'English Impressionist', although he was born in Paris and lived all his life in France. His English parents had a business career mapped out for him, but his deep interest in art -- and his talent -- quickly became apparent. From an early age he earned a precarious living as an artist, though he never attracted as much admiration as some of the other Impressionists. His quiet, restrained landscapes, delicately light and shimmery, are beautifully illustrated in this volume. They were slow to be recognised as masterpieces, and it was only after his death in 1899 that his true worth was acknowledged. ; Square 8vo 8" to 9" tall; 79 pages; 30679
