The piece of work i’m using to base my work and research on is Alfred Sisley’s 1897 piece “Storr’s Rock, Lady’s cove, evening” Which is a view of Storr’s Rock which can be found on Langland Bay, Gower peninsula, west of Swansea. I seen this piece in the National Museum Cardiff and its shown next to his piece “The cliff at Penarth, evening, low tide” which was painted the same year.
he painted a number of views in Penarth where he married his long term partner before staying in Gower and doing the same there.
Sisley was a british impressionist painter who spent most of his time in France while still remaining a British citizen. His work consisted mostly of Landscapes very rarely deviating into figure painting unlike other impressionist. He was very much influenced by Monet a french painter and a founder of the french impressionist movement, Sisley simularily painted in series and at different times of day which is something he did at Storrs Rock
