Charles-François Daubigny

Data de nascimento: 15. Fevereiro 1817
Data de falecimento: 19. Fevereiro 1878

Charles-François Daubigny é um dos alunos da Escola de Barbizon e considerado um importante precursor do Impressionismo.

Daubigny nasceu em uma família de pintores e foi introduzido à arte por seu pai, Edmond François Daubgny, e também por um tio, o miniaturista Pierre Daubigny.

Foi fortemente influenciado pelo movimento realista realizado entre 1830 e 1870 na vila de Barbizon - a "escola de Barbizon" - tornando a natureza o assunto principal de suas obras.

Seus melhores quadros foram pintados entre 1864 e 1874, e consistiam em sua maioria de cenários cuidadosamente definidos com árvores, rios e alguns patos. Na França corria a lenda que a quantidade de patos colocados pelo pintor no quadro indicava a qualidade que ele atribuia a obra: um pato, trabalho regular, dois bom, três muito bom. Porém a história parece não ter fundamento, seria apenas uma bricadeira de seus amigos. Isto porque os melhores e mais apreciados quadros do artista, considerados obras primas, que hoje fazem parte de Museu do Louvre não têm patos. Encontra-se sepultado no Cemitério do Père-Lachaise , Paris na França.

—  Charles-François Daubigny

Quote, as recorded by Albert Wolff, 1880's, in Notes upon certain masters of the XIX century, - printed not published MDCCCLXXXVI (1886), The Art Age Press, 400 N.Y. (written after the exhibition 'Cent Chefs-d'Oeuvres: the Choice of the French Private Galleries', Petit, Paris / Baschet, New York, 1883, p. 74
Daubigny's final thought for art in 1878 was appearently strongly connected with Corot.
1860s - 1870s

„I have bought at Auverse thirty perches of land, all covered with beans, on which I shall plant some legs of mutton when you come to see me. They are building me a studio there, some eight by six meters, with several rooms around it, which will serve me, I hope, next Spring [of 1861]. Father Corot has found Auvers very fine, and has engaged me to fix myself there for a part of the year, wishing to make rustic landscapes with figures. I shall be truly well of there, in the midst of a good farming country, where the ploughs do not yet go by steam.“

—  Charles-François Daubigny

„My travelling companion [= Corot] has just abandoned me. He's a perfect Father Joy, this Father Corot. He is altogether a wonderful man, who mixes jokes in with his very good advice.“

„[I] preferred paintings full of daring to the nullities welcomed into every Salon.“

—  Charles-François Daubigny
