The Church of Moret

Alfred Sisley was an early impressionist painter whose name may not come immediately to mind as one of the leading Impressionists. However his beautiful landscapes make his work easily identifiable as part of the movement. Sisley's paintings always demonstrated an orthodox approach to early Impressionism. This painting stuck out to me because in my opinion, one of the most difficult subjects to paint, is the architecture of buildings. This oil on canvas painting displays a beautiful depiction of the Church of Moret, a church down the street from where he grew up. He actually painted several versions of this at different types of the day but I found this one to be the most attractive.
