Books Info:

The Barbizon School and the Origins of Impressionism free pdf The Barbizon School were a group of mid-19th-century landscape painters, based in the village of Barbizon in the forest of Fontainebleau just outside Paris. They were very popular in Europe and the USA a century ago. Many of the features which have come to be associated with Impressionism are also found in Barbizon painting: painting the fleeting effects of the everyday world- painting from life in the open air- and impulsive brushwork. The author examines landscape painting in the 50 years before the term "Impressioniste" was first heard in Paris. The work of the Barbizon painters, such as Corot, Daumier, Millet and Courbet, is set against the tumultuous political crises that overcame France during the first half of the 19th century.
