L'inondation a Port-Marly, 1876: Canvas Replica Painting: Medium
By artist Alfred Sisley (1839-1899), in the Musee d'Orsay, Paris
In its quiet fashion, this scene of the floodwaters around a wine shop in the Rue de Paris in Port-Marly is one of the true masterpieces of plein air Impressionism. Alfred Sisley, who retained his British citizenship despite years in France, shows his lifelong love affair for the landscape in this work set along the banks of the Seine. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its bold brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.

   Alfred Sisley (1839-1899)

Alfred Sisley was a French landscape painter born in Paris of English parents. He was a pupil in the studio of the Swiss painter Charles Gabriel Gleyre, where he met the French artists Claude Monet and Pierre Auguste Renoir. With them, he became one of the founders of the impressionist school of painting. Although Sisley's work attracted little attention in his lifetime, its importance has since been recognized.

Sisley's gentle, idyllic paintings, mainly of scenes near Paris, reveal the lifelong influence of the French painter Camille Corot, especially in their soft, harmonious colors. They include La Seine Bougival (circa 1872, Yale University Gallery of Art, New Haven, Connecticut), Flood at Port-Marly (1876, Muse du Louvre, Paris), and Street in Moret (1888, Art Institute of Chicago).
