Alfred Sisley
Quotations



"I begin with the sky which can never be merely a background, the animation of the canvas, the surface, at times raised to the highest pitch of liveliness, should transmit to the beholder the sensation which possessed the artist....The artist's impression is the life-giving factor, and only this impression can free that of the spectator."

"Every picture shows a spot with which the artist himself has fallen in love."
