Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Using unpublished letters and archival documents, Shone ( The Post-Impressionists ) sheds new light on impressionist painter Alfred Sisley (1839-1899) in this engrossing, meticulously researched critical biography. It illuminates the artist's personal estrangement from his English parents who settled in Paris and embraced French bourgeois life. The evidence suggests that the penurious painter was cut off financially by his father, who apparently died insane after suffering business reversals. Sisley emerges here as a resourceful, proud, solitary figure. Shone also provides valuable details on Sisley's genteel poverty, his relations with dealers and fellow impressionists and his secluded later years in northern France. One can follow the distinct phases of Sisley's style in the 130 high-quality color plates and 40 black-and-whites. Indispensable for lovers of Sisley's luminous, healing art.

Review

'Richard Shone's Sisley is a work of distinction: knowledgeable, thoughtful and very well written. This is the book to buy.' (Daily Telegraph)

The Phaidon Colour Library is an excellent series with vivid reproductions and very complete biographies of the artists as well as historical photographs. Buying these used is a very inexpensive way to build a library and, for artists, to get source material and motivation! The copy I received was in great shape. A real bargain! The editions on Klee and Bonnard and others are just as useful if you are into modernism.

Very poor color reproduction. Colors were drab, dark and lacked the sparkle of his work. I have some of Sisley's work reproduced in othe books with much better results. Would not recommend this book.
