The catalogue of the exhibition to be shown at the Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Winter Park, FL and the Frye Art Museum, Seattle, WA will present a choice selection of 19th century French paintings from the Musée des Beaux – Arts, Reims in order to trace the h istory of French art from the Romantics, to the School of Barbizon, the circle of Honfleur, and up to Impressionism.

The Musée des Beaux – Arts, Reims owns the second largest collection of works by Jean – Baptiste Camille Corot after the Louvre as well as exce llent landscape paintings by artists from the Barbizon School. Corot was one of the most significant painters involved with the Barbizonists. Studying the Reims holdings further it seemed evident to edit a catalogue and curate an exhibition that reach from the romantic spirit in French landscape painting to the School of Barbizon on to the group of artists around Eugène – Louis Boudin at Honfleur — the true cradle of Impressionism — and lastly to the Impressionists Claude Monet, Camille Pissarro and Pierre – Auguste Renoir.
