French Paintings of the 19th Century, Part 1 - Before Impressionism Hardback
The National Gallery's collection encompasses the neoclassicism of Jacques-Louis David as well as the naturalism of the Barbizon painters.
The works of Jean-August-Dominique Ingres, such as the Gallery's famous portrait of Madame Moitessier, are precursors to the classical style that dominated later in the century.
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot's verdant landscapes, Honore Daumier's political satires, and Jean-Francois Millet's realism are also included in this richly illustrated volume.
