Les Oies A Saint-Mammes

by Alfred Sisley

P.O.A.

Alfred Sisley painted his landscapes ‘en plein air’ rather than in a studio, in order to realistically capture the transient effects of sunlight.  This piece depicts a man standing on the banks of the river at Saint-Mammes, Paris, with a gaggle of geese.

Sisley was content painting the gentle landscapes of the French countryside and when he was able to travel, the scenery of the Welsh coast and London riverbanks. The changing atmospheres of these areas were more appealing to him than dramatic or rugged landscapes and bright colours of places such as the Côte d’Azur.

Biography

The artist was born in Paris 1839 to affluent English parents. At the age of 18 he was sent to London to study for a career in business, but after four years he abandoned it and returned to Paris. He studied at the Paris École des Beaux-Arts where he became acquainted with Frédéric Bazille, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

Their work was more colourful than the public was used to seeing and as such they were not successful in exhibiting their work for many years. Sisely’s paintings were finally accepted at the Salon, France’s most important art exhibition, but this did not bring financial or critical success.

Sisley spent the rest of his life in poverty and his paintings did not rise significantly in value until after his death. He spent his life living in France with his wife and children, yet took few trips to the UK and Wales where he painted many works.
