Barbizon Art Prints

The Barbizon School of art was a movement focused toward Realism which existed between about 1830-1870, centered in the village of Barbizon, located at the edge of Fontainebleau Forest, not far from Paris. Barbizon school painters included Jean-Francois Millet, Theodore Rousseau and Charles-Francois Daubigny. The group was heavily influenced by British painter John Constable, who had abandoned the formalism primarily practiced at the time and was painting rural landscapes as main subject matter rather than as just a background to other central subjects.

Many French artists of the time gathered in Barbizon to create natural works, painted in the open air rather than in the studio. We have a fine collection of Barbizon art prints, Barbizon etchings, and what are known as Fontainebleau art prints, named after the forest adjacent to Barbizon where many of the artists found favorable subject matter.
