Room A: Paintings after 1600

This scene has been identified as a lake in Picardie, Northern France. In 1872 Daubigny travelled to Villerville, a coastal town near Trouville in Normandy, and would have painted this view during the trip.

He painted several variants of this composition including a painting dated 1873 now in Glasgow (Museum and Art Gallery).
