Susan Hodara reviews Alfred Sisley (1839-1899): Impressionist Master, an exhibition of 50 paintings at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich, Connecticut, on view through May 21, 2017.

Hodara notes that the show "is the artist’s first retrospective in the United States in more than 20 years... [curator MaryAnne Stevens] described Sisley as 'a pure Impressionist.' A dedicated landscape artist throughout his career, he remained committed to working en plein air in front of his subject, and to translating light into color in order to capture fleeting moments with paint."
