Alfred Sisley (30 October 1839 - 29 January 1899) was an Impressionist landscape painter who was born and spent most of his life in France, but retained British citizenship. He was the most consistent of the Impressionists in his dedication to painting landscape en plein air (i.e., outdoors). He deviated into figure painting only rarely and, unlike Renoir and Pissarro, found that Impressionism fulfilled his artistic needs. Among his important works are a series of paintings of the River Thames , mostly around Hampton Court , executed in 1874, and landscapes depicting places in or near Moret- sur-Loing. The notable paintings of the Seineand its bridges in the former suburbs of Paris are like many of his landscapes, characterized by tranquility, in pale shades of green, pink, purple, dusty blue and cream. Over the years Sisley's power of expression and color intensity increased. Marly-le-Roi is a commune in the Yvelines department in the le-de-France region in north- central France. It is located in the western suburbs of Paris, 18.4 km (11.4 mi) from the centre of Paris . Marly-le-Roi was the location of the Ch’teau de Marly, the famous leisure residence of the Sun King Louis XIV which was destroyed after the French Revolution . The park of the now destroyed ch’teau has been restored with its waterways and lawns.
