In 1866, after his first year at the Paris Salon, Corot took him in as a student. Sisley had been in Paris for several years and was becoming deeply affected by the Impressionist movement. Corot’s was an important part of Sisley’s painting technique, preserving an intense passion for the sky and winter snow, often combining the two to create exciting effect.
