19th-Century Barbizon School Landscape With Figures

An impressionistic French landscape painting dating to the mid-19th-century. It depicts two figures walking along a woodland track towards a distant cottage. They’re flanked by mature trees and there appears to be a river running in front of them.

It fits with the style of the Barbizon group of artists who were active between 1830-1870. These were some of the first to truly embrace painting outdoors and they’re seen as a precursor to the French impressionists. Many of their works were created in the forest of Fontainebleau near the village of Barbizon.
