Valenciennes, Daubigny, and the Origins of French Landscape Painting, 2004

Michael Marlais, John Varriano, Wendy M. Watson

French painters have historically taken to landscape with a zeal unmatched by artists of any other nationality.  Valenciennes, Daubigny, and the Origins of French Landscape Painting traces the history of artists’ engagement with nature from the late Renaissance, when landscape painting first emerged from the background of narrative representation, up to the eve of Impressionism in the 19th century.
