Wooded View near Barbizon, Johan Hendrik Weissenbruch, 1900

oil on canvas, h 48.5cm × w 64cm. More details

The Barbizon artists’ colony was located on the edge of the forest of Fontainebleau, southeast of Paris. Barbizon painters exerted a major influence on the Hague School. For this reason, Weissenbruch made a pilgrimage there for his only trip abroad, which he made at the ripe age of 76! He portrayed the characteristic birch forest, with a painter leaning against a boulder while sketching.
