Alfred Sisley was the only major Impressionist artist to work in Wales, spending July to September 1897 in Penarth, near Cardiff, and Langland Bay, on the Gower Peninsula. These paintings of south Wales, which explore the effects of light and weather, are his only seascapes, and recall Monet's views of the Breton Coast. Sisley had married his long-term partner Eugénie Lescouzec during his stay in Penarth, and the visit to Langland Bay was their honeymoon, though both were in declining health.
