Alfred Sisley

“Storr’s Rock, Lady’s Cove, Evening”

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.

“The Cliff at Penarth, Evening, Low Tide”

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
