Balcony House Explores French Barbizon Influence on Texas Landscape Painting

Balcony House Gallery presents a collection of antique and contemporary paintings influenced by Barbizon, one of the most finfluential movements in landscape painting history. Barbizon’s trademark is its exceptional atmospheric quality created by a very talented group of mid 1800’s artists that resided in the village of Barbizon just outside Paris and the forest of Fountainbleau. These artists, including Theodore Rousseau, Rosa Bonheur, Narcisse-Virgil Diaz de la Pena, Jean-Francois Millet, Jules Dupree, and Charles-Francois Daubigny have had an incredible influence on landscape painting internationally for the last 2 centuries. The foundation of the French Impressionist Movement including Claude Monet, Camille Pisarro, and Alfred Sisley among others was laid by the groundbreaking Barbizon school of thought. They took landscape painting to the next level by adding bolder color to the atmospheric qualities of the darker, mysterious brown and gold colors typical of the Barbizon artists. And now, Balcony House brings you the opportunity to take a visual adventure with Barbizon influence as created with a bit of Texas panache. These new paintings help keep the dream of Barbizon alive with a blend of contemporary perspective. Please join us for this wonderful feast for the eyes from the historic past to the beautiful present.
