Sisley 1882 expo



Impressionism, a historical reconstruction:

Alfred Sisley


at the 7th ‘impressionist’ exposition in 1882:

an impression of his paintings


Which paintings did Alfred Sisley exhibit in 1882?
On this page you will find an accounted impression of the 27 pictures that were shown by Sisley at the 7th ‘impressionist’ exposition (catalogue numbers: 162-188). I will render them thematically. Sometimes I render more than one option. Many works depicted Moret-sur-Loing and it’s surroundings. His painting style has matured, using bright, vibrant colours and juxtaposed brushstrokes. Sisley is called less bold and delerious than Monet (and Pissarro).  Huysmans described that his works ‘also have a pretty melancholic smile and often even a great charm of beauty’ (R90I,p398). 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!



Sometimes the identification of a painting is ‘uncertain’, see. For the numbers 166 +176 +177 +179 +187 I render two options. For no.178 I render 3 options. For no.175 I also render two pictures to ‘compare’. 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 Alfred Sisley. Most of the paintings are from the marvelous database of (=iR2).
