Frame late nineteenth in excellent condition without any lack If Ferdinand Chaigneau loves sheep, Constant Troyon him, loves oxen and other calves and cows. From childhood he draws, encouraged by his parents. His father, Jean-Dominique-Marie Troyon (1780-1817) is an ornamental painter and gilder at the Manufacture de Sèvres, where the family lives, where Constant was born August 28, 1810. His mother Jeanne Troyon, born Pracht, there also officiates. His parents encourage him, he studies very much with Denis Désiré Riocreux (1791-1872), painter who is also the curator of the museum of Sèvres. Very quickly, young Constant leans for landscape painting and realism, and joined the School of Barbizon and presents, from 1833 to 1864, at each fair, several works. In 1854 he settled on the Normandy coast at Villers-sur-Mer. In the spring of 1864, the first symptoms of a mental illness forced him to be interned for eight months. But the madness is there, and he died in Paris March 20, 1865 at the age of 54 years. A somewhat original subject for this painting by Constant Troyon, more accustomed to herds of cows and landscapes than to a plowing scene. That said, it is a barbizonnant theme. In a very melted brown atmosphere, three white spots catch the eye: two horses and the plowman's shirt. The trait is safe, the realism pregnant. The School of Barbizon Current pictorial born under the Monarchy of July, in the 1830s, and whose representatives show the desire to detach from romanticism and mythological subjects to paint only the landscapes of a nature they are close to to live there: this is how they settle in Barbizon small hamlet on the edge of forest Fontainebleau. They are inspired by landscapes of English painting, the revival brought to this style of painting by William Turner (1775-1851) and John Constable (1776-1837). Theodore Rousseau (1812-1867), Charles-François Daubigny (1817-1878), Constant Troyon (1810-1865), Narcissus Diaz de la Pena (1807-1876), Jules Dupre (1811-1889), Jean-François Millet ( 1814-1875). Bucolic scenes, storms, herds, illuminated by the changing lights of nature and highlighted by sunrises or sunsets.
