Alfred Sisley was the Impressionist who painted more in the open air (plein air). He always was Impressionist. He was always trying to capture the effects of light and the different atmospheric conditions on the landscape with quick brushstrokes. His theme was always landscapes. He changed his use of color, overtime he tended to use a soft, delicate palette, without stridency.

For all the above, Sisley is considered to be a pure Impressionist, and he was —as Monet— an Impressionist to his last day.
