Alfred Sisley was born on 30 October 1839, death on 29 January 1899, was an Impressionist landscape painter. Sisley was born in Paris to affluent British parents. His father, William Sisley, was in the silk business, and his mother, Felicia Sell, was a cultivated music connoisseur. In 1857, at the age of 18, Sisley was sent to London to study for a career in business, but he abandoned it after four years and returned to Paris in 1861. The rest of his life was a constant struggle against poverty. Shortly after his death his talent began to be widely recognized, and the price of his work rose sharply.
