Old Farmyard in Fontainebleau Forest, Signed Oil by Barbizon Artist Leon Richet



Oil on cardboard, 10.63 x 14.57 in. (27 x 37 cm) Signed lower right and dated (18)81 Housed in a period frame, size 16.54 x 20.47 in. (42 x 52 cm) The works of Richet particularly live from the chiaroscuro effect and the tonal color of the Barbizon artists. This painting has a furious interpreted sky and is in its entire composition a coherent work of the artist. Léon Richet (Solesmes 1847 - 1907 Fontainebleau) was a pupil of Boulanger, Lefebvre and Diaz de la Pena. Richet made his debit at the Salon in 1869, was awarded an honarable mention price in 1885 and a medal in 1888 and 1901. Recognised as a painter of landscapes and sometimes still lifes he was one of the great masters of the Barbizon School. His skill in showing the effects of light from the sky and his very careful attention to clouds, made his paintings very highly sought after by the Museums and Collectors. Artworks by Richet are on display in many fine art museums throughout the world. Artist dictionaries: Bénézit; Saur; Thieme-Becker-Vollmer, Schurr-Cabanne.
