Alfred Sisley: A Street in Moret

A Street in Moret: Alfred Sisley

French Impressionist artist Alfred Sisley painted A Street in Moret, North-Central France in 1890. Sisley’s sky, which takes up half of the canvas, sees the use of the palette knife which lends a thickness and a substantial character to it that is offset by the delicate painting of the figures and buildings. There is a concern to depict the actual place but also to embellish the picture with decorative details, as in the foreground pillar.

Alfred Sisley’s A Street in Moret is in the Art Institute of Chicago
