Barbizon School

The Romantic School in the first part of the 19th century was producing few landscapes. However, with the exposure to certain landscape artists from England, a group of painters named the Barbizon School came to influence an entire style, and eventually also the early Impressionists. A region in the forest southeast of Paris called Fontainebleau gave the group their moniker. Drawing directly from nature, the members of the Barbizon School created pictures of clarified unity. Romanticized tableaus of the interiors of the forest compelled the painters, who included Jean-Francois Millet, Rosa Bonheur and Camille Corot. A passion for the farming lifestyles of the countryside drew these painters together, and resulted in grand yet calm compositions of agrarian people in the celebrated landscape. Artists such as Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Paul Gauguin were influenced by the honesty and expression within these painters’ work.
