Art in Aix: Sisley Retrospective in Provence

Art in Aix: Sisley Retrospective in Provence

Culturespaces and the Bruce Museum in Greenwich, Connecticut, have co-organised this monographic exhibition devoted to the Impressionist painter Alfred Sisley, held at the elegant Caumont Centre d’Art in Aix-en-Provence. As if you needed an excuse to visit the sunny south of France, this is a chance to see over 60 of the major works of the celebrated Anglo-French Impressionist, on loan from the most important international institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, National Gallery in Washington, Cincinnati Art Museum, Tate Gallery and National Gallery in London, and the Royal Museums of Fine Arts in Brussels.

Discover Sisley’s timeless landscapes, his radical pictorial technique and his influences, which varied from Japanese prints to photography. The exhibition also touches on the effect of Turner and Constable on his approach, as well as the relationship between his graphic works and his painting. A look at the last two decades of his life reveals how his plein air painting was subjected to an even more determined and precise sense of discipline.
