Alfred Sisley

Alfred Sisley

(1839 - 1899)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Impressionism
Famous Works:
  • Rue de La Machine (1873)
  • The Seine at Bougival (1873)
  • Snow at Louveciennes (1878)
Impressionist Alfred Sisley enjoyed painting landscapes in diverse lighting, and was more committed to landscapes that any other impressionist painter. He trained with young artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Frédérick Bazille in the studio of Charles Gleyre in Paris. Along with his colleagues, Sisley left the confines of the indoor studio, and went outside to paint. Plein air painting was vital to the Sisley, allowing him to observe, first hand, the effects of light on his subject. A trademark of Sisley's landscapes was to incorporate streets and roads that invited the viewer into the painting, inspired, perhaps, by the work of Camille Corot. Also of particular interest to Sisley were the differences in varied atmospheric conditions. By intense observation of scenes, both urban and rural, affected by weather, season, and time of day, Sisley was able to produce works that documented his experience with light. Sisley's canvases are built up by expressive brushstrokes of color, relating the spontaneous reaction of the artist. Luminosity of color, and truthfulness in translation of vision drove Sisley's work. This approach was formed into a distinct style with the collective help of Claude Monet. Together, these two men transformed the tradition of painting, starting a method of recording experience which was to influence artists for generations.

I paint with a knife and I paint a lot. I have been using Galleria exclusively for several years. I think I can say with confidence that there is not a better paint to use if you paint with a knife. I'm new to Mister Art. I'm sure their service will be as good as their paint.

An excellent value for the price. It did not come with assembly instructions, which was a little frustrating ,so only 4 stars.

After reading that this product wouldn't work on cheap magnetic brass hinges, I tried buying new ones in bronze. After a couple of failures with buying the correct size/type of hinge, I decided to try the rub n buff.For those who asked about using this over cheap hinges that are actually brass color over steel or aluminum (do magnet test), rub n buff does work. I just did it. Soak hinges in mineral spirits or thinner. Spray clean hinges with zinseer123, I used white which I had on hand. Let dry. (I sprayed both sides and let dry over night). Once dry, I applied rub n buff with a rag. Because I used white zinseer123 primer I had to used a toothbrush to apply the rub n buff in the crevices that showed still showed white. I used ebony and autumn gold to create bronze. They look amazing.
