Charles-François Daubigny was an important forerunner and midwife to the Impressionist movement, his career reflecting the tension between his academic training and revolutionary insights gained by direct contact with nature. As a young artist he first trained under the academic painter Pierre-Asthasie-Théodore Sentiès, desperately seeking the acceptance of the Salon, yet he rebelled against the traditional formulas of landscape painting by working outdoors, in attendance to the fleeting properties of natural light. During his lifetime he would collaborate with the likes of Gustave Courbet, Paul Cézanne, Camille Corot, Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Alfred Sisley, leveraging his growing influence to advance their cause. In 1865, and again in 1870, he would resign from Salon juries to protest the rejection of works by the Impressionists, remarking that he “preferred paintings full of daring to the nonentities welcomed into each Salon.”

By the 1870s, when the present work was completed, his own style was becoming recognizably impressionistic; his brushstrokes looser, his palette higher-keyed. Having won his artistic freedom, he was openly experimenting with new techniques, and thereby lending his endorsement to a young avant-garde still struggling against orthodoxy. Though he would not live to see the future of the movement that he did so much to shape, and which did so much to shape him, his ardent support would clear a path for a new generation to spearhead the development of modern art.

Product Information

Expect crisp detail and vivid color from our giclée process fine art prints. We use archival pigment inks on cotton fiber paper to achieve a wide color gamut, deep blacks and beautiful tonal transitions. Unlike posters, they will not fade or yellow, but maintain their original quality for as long as you own them.

How to Frame

Historical artworks were produced in whatever shapes and sizes best suited the artists and their patrons, and these rarely correspond to the proportions of modern, mass-produced frames. Most reproductions sold on the web are cropped to an arbitrary standard, compromising the integrity of the original artwork. We solve this by using accent borders to make up any differences in proportion.

Framing may be as simple as inserting the print into a standard size frame with the borders showing. In many cases, our customers choose to have them matted. Borders allow space for framers to mount the print while covering little, if any, of the artwork. Our images are sized to provide desirable mat widths in common frames.

Sizes 9” x 12”, 12” x 16”, and 16” x 20” are designed to be matted in larger frames, such as 11” x 14”, 16” x 20” and 20” x 24”, respectively. Larger prints may be matted in frames of equal size, the borders corresponding to the shape of the mat. Where the artwork is unusually square or narrow, other sizes may be preferred.

If our sizing does not meet your requirements, we provide customization free of charge. Please contact us to discuss the details.
