Sisley 1876 expo

Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Alfred Sisley (1839-1899)

An impression of his paintings

at the 2nd impressionist exposition in 1876



General introduction:
On this page you will find an impression of the 8+2hc=10 pictures that were shown by Sisley at the second ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1876 (catalogue numbers: 237-244+hc2). Sisley depicted the waterworks in Louveciennes and Marly and the floods in Port-Marly. I will render the pictures thematically and sometimes I give more than one option. Sometimes the indentification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. Sometimes to ‘compare’ another picture is given that is (probably) similar to the painting that was exhibited. For explanation of the subscriptions, see. For an account (references, info, discussion, locations on Google-maps) see. For the sources see at the bottom of the main page about Sisley. Most of the paintings are from the marvelous database of Note: If you double click on the first (of a cluster of) pictures and then click on full screen, you can create a slideshow. Enjoy!
