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.

Latest Product Reviews

I really like these pencils. I accidentally found a technique that really exemplified the "magic" in them. Rolling the pencil to preserve the point and coloring in a circular motion really brings out the random beauty of the colors in coloring a small petaled flower like a zinnia. I have colored an entire picture with one pencil and gotten raves about it. The biggest drawback I am experiencing is the lack of tutorials to help people understand how to use them. I have seen critiques where the artist did not have a clue how to use them. I have also seen a Russian tutorial that shows a lot of blending techniques that really show some extraordinary effects. I am currently exploring their use for backgrounds. I like the pencils and find them a challenge to explore the "magic."

I use this tape to hold the Mylar on the drafting table. It's a very good tape! It releases without leaving residue, and it is thin enough to let the rule slide on top. The tape doesn't break while unrolling, unlike many others. I highly recommend it.
