In the middle of the 19th century, a group of French artists set up home in the village of Barbizon in the Fontainebleau forest, some forty miles southeast of Paris.
They made paintings of landscape scenes and peasant agriculture, with especial attention given to naturalistic lighting effects. After the village that became their centre, they became known as the Barbizon School.
The Barbizon school of painters were part of an art movement towards Realism in art, which arose in the context of the dominant Romantic Movement of the time.
The Barbizon school was active roughly from 1830 through 1870. It takes its name from the village of Barbizon, France, on the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleau, where many of the artists gathered.
Most of their works were landscape painting, but several of them also painted landscapes with farmworkers, and genre scenes of village life.
Some of the most prominent features of this school are its tonal qualities, color, loose brushwork, and softness of form.
