Barbizon School
The Barbizon school was a group of french artists working in the small village of Barbizon, in the forest of Fontainebleau between 1830 and 1860, searching in the nature an answer to their fears. Indeed their feeling for nature may be regarded as a form of Romantic revolt from the drabness of urban life in this new industrialist area. They usually painted studies in the open air and their finished pictures were done in the studio, but keeping the truth and the light of natural environment. This approach broke with the Classical conventions and annunced the Impressionism.
