Description
Daubigny's art sprang from a humble vision of the rural countryside.
In an age of economic prosperity, Daubigny and other artists (including Diaz de la Pe-a and Rousseau) set themselves in opposition to urban life by establishing the practice of painting out-of-doors at Barbizon, in the Fontainebleau Forest. Daubigny's vision-of a universally accessible land inhabited by common people-posed a counterpoint to the new cosmopolitan brilliance and modernity of a revitalized Paris.
