Charles-François Daubigny was a Parisian painter in the mid–19th century. Although his work was acceptable to the conservative French Academy (he regularly exhibited at the Paris Salon), his landscape works influenced later French painters who strayed from traditional, academic painting styles. Daubigny took after painters Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot and Gustave Corbet. Significantly, Daubigny converted his boat into a floating studio that allowed him to paint outside instead of in a studio—a practice French Impressionists would soon embrace. He met younger Frenchmen Claude Monet and Paul Cézzane early in their careers and presumably had a significant impact on their artistic developments.
