Narcisse Virgile Diaz de la Peña
L'Amour et la Richesse

c.1855

About

Oil on canvas. Framed dimensions 22 inches high by 14 inches wide. Diaz was born to Spanish parents, but following their early deaths was raised by a protestant minister near Paris. In 1823 he worked in the same porcelain factory as Jules-Louis Dupré, with whom he became a lifelong friend. From 1835 he regularly painted in the forest of Fontainebleau and was a leader of the Barbizon landscape school, close to Theodore Rousseau but increasingly attempting dramatic light effects by heavy impasto and free brushwork, as in Forest Scene (1867; St Louis, Art Mus.). Some landscapes are livened up with anecdotal gypsy staffage, and he maintained a miscellaneous output of pieces designed to respond to popular taste—oriental, mythological, and historical genre scenes, nudes, flower paintings, and fêtes galantes. Literature: Included in the Catalogue Raisonne of the painter - entry 2724 Exhibition History: No.35 Exhibition "Diaz" - Le Pavillon Des Arts - Paris 1936
