Landscape in the Forest at Compiègne  1828

by Paul Huet

In this image of a densely wooded glade, Huet’s quickly rendered brushstrokes and limited palette bear witness to the immediacy of unedited direct observation. Although Huet traveled extensively throughout France during his career, he found this subject in the forest of Compiègne, near the estate of the aristocratic Orléans family, his longstanding patrons.
