Description: Charles-Francois Daubigny's "Going To Work" original oil on canvas painting.

Daubigny was born in Paris, into a family of painters and was taught the art by his father Edmond François Daubigny and his uncle, miniaturist Pierre Daubigny.

Initially Daubigny painted in a traditional style, but this changed after 1843 when he settled in Barbizon to work outside in nature. Even more important was his meeting with Camille Corot in 1852 in Optevoz (Isère). On his famous boat Botin, which he had turned into a studio, he painted along the Seine and Oise, often in the region around Auvers. From 1852 onward he came under the influence of Gustave Courbet.

In 1866 Daubigny visited England, eventually returning because of the Franco-Prussian war in 1870. In London he met Claude Monet, and together they left for the Netherlands. Back in Auvers, he met Paul Cézanne, another important Impressionist. It is assumed that these younger painters were influenced by Daubigny.

This is an excellent example of the artist work from the period c1870. Daubigny was a pioneer of modern landscape painting and an important precursor of French Impressionism. He was dubbed the leader of "The School of the Impression". As a result, he drew the attention of Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, and many more important Impressionists.

This piece has been certified authentic and genuine, and has been appraised at $135,000 CAN.
