Valenciennes, Daubigny, and the Origins of French Landscape Painting traces the history of artists' engagement with nature from the late Renaissance, when landscape painting first emerged from the background of narrative representation, up to the eve of Impressionism in the nineteenth century. French artists faced many choices as they made their way through the rural landscape over the course of three centuries. As the first two essays in this volume illustrate, the classicizing idiom captured and sustained their imagination for most of that time. The erudition of Pierre-Henri de Valenciennes, who was for landscape painting what Jacques-Louis David was for history painting, constitutes a milestone in the itinerary. Much of this study rests on the analysis of a single painting, his lyrical Classical Greek Landscape with Girls Sacrificing Their Hair to Diana of 1790.
