Henri Joseph Harpignies
L'Etang dans la foret de Barbizon

About

The French painter Henri Joseph Harpignies was a superlative painter of trees, foliage and underbrush, a talent fostered by the study and inspiration of the Barbizon School, and evident in this impressive view of a pond in the lush forest. True to the principle of painting “en plein air” while perfecting the composition within the studio, the artist has created a poignant scene, naturally framed by internal elements. This eloquent vision of nature is beautifully balanced in form, and adheres to a rustic palette of hues by natural sunlight. Harpignies uses vigorous and unrestrained brush strokes to define the forest foliage, employing a palette of lush greens and rich browns. Anatole France dubbed Harpignies “the Michelangelo of the trees.” His favorite sites were the environs of Paris, the forest of Fontainebleau, the Valley of the Aumance and the French Riviera. These tranquil, yet flourishing regions enkindled in artists a love of nature, and inspired the work of some of the greatest landscape painters of the nineteenth century.
