Happy Birthday, Alfred Sisley

“Though the artist must remain master of his craft, the surface, at times raised to the highest pitch of loveliness, should transmit to the beholder the sensation which possessed the artist.

Alfred Sisley, Impressionist landscape painter. October 30, 1839 – January 29, 1899

Of all  the Impressionists, he was the most consistent in his commitment to painting the landscape en plein air (outdoors).  He is known for a series of paintings of the Upper Thames near Molesey.
