Narcisse Díaz de la Peña
Figure in Forest

c. 1860

About

An excellent painting by the 19th century artist. Signed lower left. Diaz was born to Spanish parents, but following their early deaths was raised by a protestant minister near Paris. In 1823 he worked in the same porcelain factory as Jules-Louis Dupré, with whom he became a lifelong friend. From 1835 he regularly painted in the forest of Fontainebleau and was a leader of the Barbizon landscape school, close to Theodore Rousseau but increasingly attempting dramatic light effects by heavy impasto and free brushwork, as in Forest Scene (1867; St Louis, Art Mus.). Some landscapes are livened up with anecdotal gypsy staffage, and he maintained a miscellaneous output of pieces designed to respond to popular taste—oriental, mythological, and historical genre scenes, nudes, flower paintings, and fêtes galantes.
