"Barbizon [France] is the home of the Barbizon School of painters. The Barbizon School of painters were part of a greater art movement in the 1800s towards realism in art. Influenced by the English painter, John Constable, the movement was a response to the Romantic movement. Millet, Rousseau, and Corot were just a few painters who called Barbizon home and who drew inspiration from Barbizon’s surrounding landscapes." Photo credit --- Traveling Lens by Vivienne Gucwa.
