Barbizon School

1840's – 1850's

The Barbizon School was a group of landscape artists working in the region of the French town of Barbizon, at the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleu. They rejected the Academic tradition, abandoning theory in an attempt to achieve a truer representation of the countryside, and are considered to be part of the French Realist movement. Thodore Rousseau (not to be confused with naive artist Henri Rousseau) is the best-known member of the group. Other prominent members included Charles-Franois Daubigny (the first plein air painter), and Constant Troyon. Realist painters Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot and Jean-Franois Millet are also sometimes loosely associated with this school. The Barbizon School artists are often considered to have been forerunners of the Impressionists, who took a similar philosophical approach to their art.
