About this artwork

Dutilleux was an intimate friend of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot and Eugene Delacroix. He had exhibited various works at the Paris Salons since 1834, but only in 1851, during a stay in the Forest of Fountainbleau, did he discover his vocation as a landscape painter. The style and technique of his own mature landscapes so strongly reflect the influence of Corot that some of Dutilleux’s works have been mistakenly attributed to Corot himself.
