Description

We’ll leave by coach for a guided tour of Barbizon, an idyllic village set on the edge of the forest surrounding Fontainebleau. The tranquil setting here attracted many 19th-century landscape painters. Their movement, the precursor of Impressionism, became known as the Barbizon School. The Auberge Ganne is where the artists gathered to inspire each other. It is now a museum celebrating this era in art history. The quaint village streets are lined with small homes, charming boutiques, interesting restaurants, and intriguing art galleries. After following the footsteps of famous artists such as Corot, Daubigny, and Millet on the “Painter’s Trail,” we’ll stop at the Auberge Ganne, a virtual time capsule that brings you back to the origins of the movement and the influence it had on the village and the art world.  We’ll then head over to the Millet Studio Museum, where Jean-François Millet created many of his masterpieces. His home and studio have been preserved since his time there and contain many original paintings and objects he used.

After our tour, enjoy some free time strolling through the village streets and browsing the boutiques and galleries.
