Snow at Louveciennes, Alfred Sisley (1874 & 1878)

Two more wonderful winter compositions by a French impressionist painter - the first by Sisley in 1874 and the second with more dynamic brushwork and a cooler palet done in 1878.

To learn more of Louvenciennes (a favorite site of several French impressionists) & see an earlier Sisley painting go here.
