Alfred Sisley at NG

Alfred Sisley - Allee de peupliers de MoretA year ago, an armed gang raided the Museum of Fine Arts in Nice and stole this attractive painting by Alfred Sisley: Allee de peupliers de Moret (CLICK). Until the robbery, the "English Impressionist" appears to have been forgotten in England. The National Gallery in London is about to change that with a new exhibition: Sisley in England and Wales, showing the landscapes he painted here. The NG website hasn't caught up with this news yet, but ArtDaily has the press release (title link). Looks interesting: an English artist rediscovered. I'll let you know when it opens.

Never heard of him before you printed that picture. Thank you very much Coxsoft; please show more of his work. He's a wonderful artist.
