The exhibition

The exhibition is about Charles-François Daubigny, who is lauded by his innovative drive and loved by collectors, critics and the public at large. For the first time, the museum highlights Daubigny’s role as the founder of Impressionism and a source of inspiration for van Gogh and other Impressionist painters from the 1860s and 70s.

Landscape drawings

Drawing landscapes was a very popular pastime in the 19th century. Van Gogh admired the work of the landscape painter Daubigny and considered him an innovator of the French art of painting. This is clearly visible in the moody landscape paintings of the Barbizon School as well as Van Gogh’s expressive farmer’s fields. You can also see a presentation of the best French landscape drawings in the Van Gogh Museum collection in the Print Room.
