Charles-François Daubigny (1817-1878)

The Satyr

Île-de-France, Paris, 1850


260 x 200 mm


A satyr appears in a landscape that may have been inspired by the forest at Fontainebleu. As an artist renowned for a commitment to the faithful reproduction of nature, the presence of the satyr is uncharacteristic. Early in his career, Daubigny restored paintings at the Louvre and spent a brief period under the tutelage of academician Paul Delaroche. It was through etching that Daubigny first found artistic and financial success.
