A landscape painting by a leading impressionist artist of the 1800s is on display at the Kimbell Art Museum, 3333 Camp Bowie Blvd, beginning Thursday.

The Kitchen Garden, an 1872 work by French artist Alfred Sisley, depicts a country garden behind a suburban residence, painted with delicate brushstrokes characteristic of the impressionist style.

Sisley, born in 1839 to English parents in France, worked in small towns along the Seine and Loing Rivers. He was friends with fellow artists Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Frédéric Bazille. Sisley also painted with Monet as well as impressionist painter Camille Pissarro.

Visitors can find the painting in the Kahn Building of the museum. Admission is free.
