Seascape

Artist: Charles Francois Daubingy
Date:1876

The Frenchman Charles-François Daubigny (1817 –1878) was one of the painters of the Barbizon school, and is considered to be a major pioneer of the impressionist movement. He was also a prolific printmaker.  By 17 he had left home and worked on restoring the paintings of the Palace of Versailles for the Louvre’s Restoration workshop. Daubigny’s traditional style changed after 1843 when he settled in Barbizon to work outside in nature. Nicknamed “the water painter”, rivers and ponds were an important part of his work. Famously he even had a boat, Botin, which he had turned into a studio allowing him to get even closer to the water. He painted along the Seine and Oise, often in the region around Auvers but even travelled up to coast at Honfleur. From 1852 onward he came under the influence of Gustave Courbet. His close friends were Oudinot, Corot, Daumier, Geoffroy Dechaume, etc … He championed the impressionists such as Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas, Sisley, Cezanne and Berthe Morisot with both the art establishment and Le Salon, who were not keen on this avant garde art form. His fame increased and Napoléon III purchased his “The Pond at Gylieu", a canvas considered to be a genuine masterpiece.

All Musée museum quality prints are professionally mounted on 2.4mm acid free art board ready to free stand or frame. Mounted prints also help to preserve the qualty of the edges and keep the prints perfectly flat with no risk of cockling. Cockling is the process by which a print starts to ripple due to changing levels of ambient moisture which are naturally present in the air in all our homes. Also, when you decide to either change your Musée artwork in your frames or swap them out for a new find, a Musée mounted print will stay flat and safe whilst in storage.
