Photographer's Note

Fountain bleau and artists. A beneficial spirit often haunted the site of Fontainebleau. A school around the castle marked the advent of an aristocratic and decorative art under François 1st. A group around a hamlet took strongly part three centuries later in the rise of the landscape naturalist and devoted painting on the reason (school of Barbizon). Without forgotten writers and poets, gained by the romanticism and a new feeling for nature which found so close to Paris a place of creation and inspiration. Among all these artists also photographers meet: a half-thousand of tests approximately carried out of 1850 to 1880 are preserved by collectors, museums or with the national Library of France. Largest with my taste is Gray which in 1849 and 1850 enters the forest of Fontainebleau. Just as "the men took in the forests the first idea of architecture", it will receive the revelation of photography there. According to Bernard Marbot "forgotten photographers of the forest of Fontainebleau". Sentier Denecourt-Colinet 11 This photograph is a modest homage to these forgotten artists.
