Narcisse Virgile Diaz de la Peña
Washerwoman in the Forest

c. 1860

About

An excellent painting by the 19th century artist depicting a washerwomen at the river's edge in a forest. Signed with initial lower right. Framed dimensions are 16 inches high by 19.5 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.
