Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Alfred Sisley


at the 3th impressionist exposition in 1877:

an impression of his paintings


Which paintings did Alfred Sisley exhibit in 1877?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of  the 17+1hc=18 pictures that were shown by Sisley at the 3rd ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1877 (catalogue numbers: 211-227+hc1). I render them thematically and sometimes I render more than one option. Bigot (1877/04/28) reviewed ‘… one senses that he loves nature and makes an effort to produce sincere impressions of it’ (R2,p239). Rivière praised the ’tranquillity’ in his works (R2,p240). Again many works depicted the Seine and the surroundings of Marly. 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!


Alfred Sisley showed 1 painting outside the catalogue (=hors catalogue =hc). In render two options for no. 213 +218 +219 +221 +224 +227 +227+hc1, the indentification is ‘uncertain’, see more. For explanation of the subscriptions, see. For an account (references, info, discussion and 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
