12 Nov 2008-15 Feb 2009. For the first time England and Wales celebrate the Impressionist painter Alfred Sisley (1839-99) and a relatively unknown part of his work, depicting the British landscape. Sisley was born in Paris of English parents and remained a British subject throughout his life. However, he displayed his paintings in the UK only twice. On display are these two groups of paintings, which reveal two of the most creative moments of his entire career. His earlier works, which date back to 1874, the year of the first Impressionist exhibition, include depictions of London and the surrounding area, while the second group, which date back to 1897, portray the coast of Wales and demonstrates Sisley
