ALFRED SISLEY. Ed. by MaryAnne Stevens. Royal Academy of Arts, London, 1992. Organized in association with Musee d'Orsay, Paris, and Walters Art Gallery, Baltimore. Published in association with Yale University Press, New Haven. 308 pp. with 246 ills. (120 col.). 30 x 25 cm. LC 92-50345 ISBN 0300052448 In English.
Documenting the first major retrospective of the work of Anglo-French painter Sisley (1839-1899), a significant but relatively neglected figure in the history of Impressionism, this catalogue features full-page color reproductions and lengthy discussions of 81 paintings, mainly studies of the villages and countryside along the Seine which the artist produced throughout his career. A detailed biographical chronology and three critical texts describe the main stages of Sisley's artistic development, while three essays appraise his output in the context of the traditions of 19th-century French and English landscape painting, trace his long-term relationship with Parisian art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel, and examine the popularity of works by Sisley and other Impressionists among American collectors of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
