Date Latest about 1863
Description This is a study for Vendanges en Bourgogne, exhibited at the Salon of 1863 and purchased by the Louvre at the artist's sale in 1878 (no. 133). After meeting Camille Corot in 1852, Daubigny devoted his time increasingly to landscapes painted directly from nature. To facilitate this, he launched his Botin in 1857, a studio-boat in which he could float whilst sketching the surrounding countryside. He was criticised by Theophile Gautier for his directness and lack of traditional finish and accused of rendering the 'impression' of nature. It was not until the end of the century that he began to be admired as a forerunner of the Impressionist movement.
