The town of Barbizon was the seat of the Barbizon School that focused on a mid 19th century painting movement called "Realism" or "Naturalism" that featured landscapes and scenes from everyday life including the depiction of the working class, a drastic departure from the sublime landscapes of the Romantic Period. The school draws its name from the town which was home to the leaders of the movement, Theodore Rousseau and Jean-François Millet. About half an hour south of Paris, it is today a quaint tourist village with museums, galleries, and workshops dedicated to its artistic past. Full of boutique hotels and charming restaurants, a visit to Barbizon makes a great day or weekend trip from Paris or Bailly Romainvilliers.
