Les péniches, Charles-François Daubigny

Sometimes I think history could have just bypassed Impressionism, and gone straight from Daubigny to contemporary plein air styles.

Oh Boy! … skipped impressionism!
… meanwhile, in other news Charley Parker nearly incited a riot…
Perhaps I should rephrase… (grin). Precursors of Impressionism like Daubigny and Johan Barthold Jongkind appear to anticipate contemporary plein air styles with remarkable similarities.
Likewise the still-underrated – and wonderful – Eugene Boudin.
Yes. I certainly agree that Boudin is insufficiently appreciated, and I’m remiss in not having featured his work yet on Lines and Colors. There are some good resources on the web now.
