What might appear, in its wonderful painterly immediacy, to have been painted by a contemporary plein air master, was in fact painted in the mid 1800′s.
Jongkind, a Dutch painter who spent much of his career in France, is often mentioned a precursor of French Impressionism. I think you can draw a pretty direct line through to the best painterly realism of today.
