Naam: Forest View (Bosgezicht)
DIAZ DE LA PENA, Diaz was born to Spanish parents, but following their early deaths was raised by a protestant minister near Paris. In 1823 he worked in the same porcelain factory as Jules-Louis Dupré, with whom he became a lifelong friend.
He began copying paintings in the Louvre - this influenced his early work which is based on mythology and literature. He made his debut at the Paris Salon in 1831 with 'Scene of Love'. From the mid-1830s he frequently stayed in the Forest of Fontainebleau, and was greatly influenced by Théodore Rousseau. He was also influenced by eighteenth-century decorative landscape, and often peopled his own landscapes with musicians, peasants and gypsies.
Paintings in the he National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, London; Louvre, and the Wallace Collection, Hertford House. Perhaps the best known works of Diaz are "La Fée aux Perles" (1857, housed in the Louvre), "Sunset in the Forest" (1868), "The Tempest" and "The forest of Fontainebleau" (1870, hosted in Leeds) .
