A forest holds many secrets--dark and dank one moment, blazing with light pouring into a clearing the next. And an ancient forest is even more intriguing. The Fontainebleau Forest south of Paris has been inhabited for millennia. If only the trees could talk...
Ever since my first visit to the Fontainebleau Forest in the mid-1990s, I have been captivated by the beauty of its trees and the mysteries of its rocks. For any artist, the forest is an inspiration, but Fontainebleau is particularly so for me because it is considered one of the birthplaces of modern art. Home to the Barbizon School of painters in the late 19th Century, Fontainebleau nurtured artists such as Millet and Rousseau who had a profound affect on the development of modern art into the 20th Century.
