This is a spectacular large original 19th Century French Barbizon School Oil on Canvas Painting with Sotheby's Provenance! The stunning work depicts a fabulous Impressionist Autumn woodland landscape, set within the magnificent Forest Of Fontainebleau, France, and it was painted/signed in 1863 by probably one of the most important 19th Century French Barbizon School Impressionist artists', Antoine Chintreuil (May 15, 1814 – August 8, 1873) was a French landscape painter. He was born in Pont-de-Vaux, Ain and grew up in Bresse. In 1838 he moved to Paris, where he began studying under Paul Delaroche in 1842. The following year he met Corot, who influenced him profoundly by encouraging him to paint landscape en Plein air. Art historian Athena S. E. Leoussi suggests that Chintreuil's work can be divided into three periods: From c. 1846–1850 he painted Paris and its surroundings, particularly Montmartre; from 1850–1857 he lived in Igny and frequently painted in Barbizon, and from 1857 on he lived and worked in La Tournelle-Septeuil in the Seine valley. During this final period, his work reached its fullest development, and he achieved critical recognition. In the breadth and simplicity of his execution, and in his attention to capturing light and atmosphere, Chintreuil can be placed alongside Eugène Boudin, Johan Barthold Jongkind, and the painters of the Barbizon school, as an important forerunner of Impressionism. He was a member of the committee that organized the famous Salon des Refusés of 1863. He died in Septeuil, Seine-et-Oise in 1873. The above-mentioned work is central to Chintreuil's most celebrated works, as it is both signed and dated 63 (1863), which was the period Chintreuil became renowned for his finest Barbizon Oil Paintings. Fabulously detailed throughout, with an amazing technique to portray light. Mounted within the original and truly magnificent giltwood carved frame which is of excellent patination and retains most of the original gilding. This work was previously sold at Sotheby's Auction (lot 222, December 1st, 1998) so it has good provenance and it is a fantastic investment piece. **note: Artist sales listed at auction are up to $18000** Attributes: Oil on Canvas Artist: Antoine Chintreuil Signed: 'Chintreuil' Dated: 63 (1863) Attached verso: French canvas stamp together with a small label indicating the earlier Sotheby's auction sale information. ^^ Fast & Free UK Delivery Included^^ *A Certificate Of Authenticity (COA) will be provided by artsonline with this piece*
