Morning on the Oise, Auvers

DAUBIGNY, Charles François (1817 - 1878)

Morning on the Oise, Auvers

Media: oil on board

Size: 20.8 x 41.9 cm

Acquired: 1961; Purchase

Accession Number: NMW A 2448

This painting is a study of light rather than landscape. Daubigny had a specially adapted studio boat called Le Botin, which he would row into the centre of the river. From there he could appreciate the full effect of the sky reflecting on the water. A pioneer in open-air painting, he was a key influence for Impressionists such as Claude Monet.
