Top Ten Paintings by Alfred Sisley

Top Ten Paintings by Alfred Sisley

       Alfred Sisley (1839 – 1899) was born in Paris as the son of rich English parents on October 30, 1839. His father William Sisley was a successful exporter to the US. After his basic education, Alfred Sisley was sent back to England to enhance his knowledge of the English language and to become a successful businessman like his father. Alfred Sisley however took the opportunity to study the works of John Constable and William Turner. Sisley wasn’t attracted to the business-world and returned to Paris at age 23. His father supported him and decided to send him to the École des Beaux-Arts, where he studied under Charles Gleyre. Charles Gleyre encouraged him to paint in open air and to be original.

Top Ten Paintings by Claude Monet

Top Ten Paintings by Claude Monet 

Claude Monet1

       Claude Monet (1840 – 1926) was born in Paris, France. His family moved to Le Havre in Normandy when he was five. His father wanted him to go into the family grocery store business, but Oscar Monet wanted to paint. Eugène Boudin, an artist who worked extensively on plein air paintings – quick sketches made in open air – at beaches in Normandy, taught him some painting techniques in 1856. Monet had to serve in the army in Algeria. His aunt Lecadre agreed to get him out of the army if he took an art course at a university. He left the army, but he did not like the traditional painting styles the university taught.

Edgar Degas 1

       Born Edgar Hilaire Germain de Gas in Paris, France, he was the oldest of five children. Madame de Gas belonged to a French family that settled in America. Degas was fond of his mother and her death in 1847 was a deep personal tragedy for Degas. His father, a banker, encouraged his son’s artistic inclination. He received a classical education at Lycee Louis-le-Grand from 1845 to 1852.

  17. Bonus: Little Dancer of Fourteen Years (1881)

    Bronze, yellow wax, hair, ribbon, linen bodice, satin shoes, muslin tutu, wood base height 97 cm “La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans” (“Little Dancer of Fourteen Years”), c. 1881, is a sculpture by Edgar Degas of a young dance student named Marie van Goethem. The sculpture was first cast in plaster before it was cast in 1922 in bronze. “Little Dancer of Fourteen Years” is made from wax, an unusual choice of material for a sculpture of this time, dressed in a cotton skirt with a hair ribbon, sitting on a wooden base. The relationship between Marie van Goethem and Edgar Degas is one of debate. It was usual in 1880 for the ‘Petits Rats’ of the Opera of Paris to seek protectors from among the wealthy visitors at the back door of the opera. When the “La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans” was shown in Paris at the Sixth Impressionist Exhibition of 1881, it received mixed reviews. The majority of critics where shocked by the piece. They thought it was ugly, that it looked like a medical specimen, in part because Degas exhibited it inside a glass case. Some considered the head and face grotesque and primitive. One copy of “La Petite Danseuse de Quatorze Ans” is currently owned by the creator and owner of Auto Trader, John Madejski. He stated that he bought the sculpture by accident. The original wax model was sold for $12,377,500 to François Pinault at Sotheby’s in November 1999.
