Alfred Sisley

Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) was born in Paris of English parents, and studied art with Monet, with whom he later shared a home and studio; he was also a friend of Manet, Degas, and Renoir. Sisley was primarily a landscape painter, especially of the countryside around the Ile-de-France. In 1876 he moved to Moret-sur-Loing, where homes and views which he painted still survive.
