A View of The Sevres Road | Alfred Sisley

       Ordinary country roads present a warm poetry in Sisley's pen. The painter uses transparent tones to depict the sky, the road, and the trees and houses on both sides. The exquisite realistic brushwork is used to show the effect of the sun reflection he feels. The purple-grey tone reflects the bright yellow and yellowish color blocks, which makes the autumn season warm and warm. The depiction of the road uses broken and orderly strokes to express changes in light and shadow.

        Alfred Sisley (1839 ~ 1899), French Impressionist landscape painter. Originally from the UK, born in Paris. When he was a young man, he was an apprentice in a shop in London. He took time to study and was influenced by Constance, Bonnington and Turner. He returned to Paris in 1862 and met with Monet and Renoir at the Academy of Fine Arts in Paris. Influenced by Renoir, he used bright tones and rapid brushstrokes to express the flow of air and the instantaneous changes in water and light. The war of 1870 caused Sisley to retreat to Marley near Paris, where he created a large number of landscape paintings. In 1880, the painter moved to live near Morey on the Loan River south of Paris.
