Contextual notes: 
During the nineteenth century a group of French painters including Georges Michel, Theodore Rousseau, Jean-Francois Miller, and Corot sought their inspiration by going to the landscape and painting what they saw. Collectively they are known as the Barbizon school of painting named after a village in northern France.
The links between the painters and French landscape photography in the middle of the century are numerous. André Giroux (1801-1879) for example was a talented painter as well as a master photographer and the photographs by Gustave Le Gray (1820-1884) of the forests at Fontainebleau were used as templates for paintings.
