About

Narcisse Díaz de la Peña, born on August 20, 1807 in Bordeaux and died November 18, 1876 in Menton, is a French painter. From 1837, he joined the Barbizon School group and painted landscapes of his favorites sites. He particularly liked in Fontainebleau: Bas-Breau, Apremont, and the Solle valley. Diaz admires Eugene Delacroix and like artists and writers, he is fascinated by the Orient. Victor Hugo's Orientales impress him. He also uses nature as a backdrop to introduce allegorical, mythological or real figures. He frequented Théodore Rousseau and Jean-François Millet and gave them their support. He paints while working the material which allows him to obtain luminous effects and in this he will influence the Impressionists. From 1862 he stayed regularly on the Normandy coast, especially in Etretat. He painted several marines alongside his friend Gustave Courbet. At the Salons, he regularly receives awards and is considered a "charming colourist". It is this quality that Vincent van Gogh, his fervent admirer, appreciated most in him.
