      When Art meets Nature... Let's take the journey in the footsteps of the 19th century Artists and discover the magic of this village which was, between 1830 and 1870, the scene of a revolution that changed the course of modern painting.

      Barbizon, a peaceful hamlet on the edge of the forest, welcomed "colourists" and
      "landscape" painters at the beginning of the 19th century.

      With an easel on their back, they leave the workshops and go to the forest to paint the nature subject.They are welcomed by the Ganne couple in their house which later becomes "The Ganne Inn".

      Artists such as Jean-François Millet, Théodore Rousseau and many others: writers, philosophers, singers, actors, settled in Barbizon.
