1200 x 324 • 133 KB
Rousseau is best known for the dramatic landscapes he painted in the Forest of Fontainebleau and around the village of Barbizon, where he lived. He is probably the greatest landscape painter, along with Corot and Courbet, of the mid nineteenth century. This painting is unusual in Rousseau's oeuvre as it depicts a panoramic view from an elevated location of the Ile de France, but the exact whereabouts are unidentified.
