Alfred Sisley: Thames at Hampton Court

Thames at Hampton Court: Alfred Sisley

Thames at Hampton Court is a very Impressionist work of 1874 by English painter Alfred Sisley, showing a concern with light effects and a certain divisionism of colour, i.e. the placement of individual brushstrokes of different colours alongside each other. The scene here takes place in Richmond upon Thames, 12 miles South-West of London on the Thames, we can see the palace at Hampton Court in the right background, it is reduced in scale to ornamental significance.

Alfred Sisley’s Thames at Hampton Court is in the Clark Art Institute in Williamstown, Massachusetts, United States.
