Spring is here! 🌸🌳
Daubigny was one of the painters of the Barbizon School, a precursor to the Impressionist style that aimed towards Realism, the art movement that strove to represent the subject as truthfully and as close to nature as possible. He often painted from his studio, which was aboard his boat called Botin, so that he could paint from the river. In his travels he met and influenced a number of young artists who would be become Impressionist masters, such as #ClaudeMonet and #PaulCézanne. .
