Once upon a time … (our story begins here)
Inspired by Barbizon´s Spirit of Change
Barbizon, a French village on the edge of the forest of Fontainebleau, in the mid-nineteenth century attracted a group of young French painters who rejected the classical themes and rules taught at the academies to do their studies from Nature. They found at Barbizon, with its undulating countryside, luxuriant forest, everyday life of peasants and farmers, and other simple motifs, the conditions needed for their naturalist painting, giving rise to the so-called Barbizon school, from which the Impressionist movement later emerged. Owing to this historical and cultural past, including great masters like Corot, Millet, Rousseau and Monet, the calm Barbizon village became famous ever since. Inspired by Barbizon´s important role in the making of Art History, newbarbizonARTgallery invites worldwide artists to use our web platform to share their emotion and vision of Art, as well as to deal successfully with the opportunities created by the modern website art world.
You also can start your art adventure here.

Ask yourself if you feel like being a newbarbizonARTist.
A newbarbizonARTist is a person with a passion for art and beauty who feels free to find his or her own path as an artist and is independent enough to determine personal artistic goals, but, nevertheless, feels an obligation to contribute to the evolution and a more just appreciation of the art world by collaborating with like-minded fellow artists.
