Diese Aussage von Théodore Rousseau widergibt am besten sein Wesen und Denken.
"Der Baum dessen Laub rauscht, die Heide, deren Blüten duften, das ist für mich die Historie, die unvergänglich ist, wenn ich ihre Sprache richtig spreche, so werde ich die Sprache aller Zeiten sprechen."

E: Théodore Rousseau was a French artist and one of the leading figures in the Barbizon School of painters alongside Jean-François Millet and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. Staging himself in rural landscapes around France, Rousseau depicted his passion for nature with a range of brushstrokes and tonal colors, as evinced in his brooding work The Forest in Winter at Sunset (1846-1867). “It is better in art to be honest than clever,” he once remarked. Born Pierre-Étienne-Théodore Rousseau on April 15, 1812 in Paris, France, he began to paint as a teenager and later studied under Neoclassical artists while basing much of his style on the 17th-century Dutch landscape painters Jacob van Ruisdael and Meindert Hobbema. Beginning to work en plein air during the 1820s, Rousseau first travelled to the Fontainebleau forest southeast of Paris in 1833. He settled in Barbizon, a village on the outskirts of the forest, it was here that he began working alongside Corot, Charles-François Daubigny, Narcisse-Virgile Diaz de La Peña, and Millet. Throughout the subsequent years, the artist had a contentious relationship with the Paris Salon which often rejected his works, this would change by the 1850s. Along with the rest of the Barbizon School, Rousseau’s work had a profound impact on the developing styles of a younger generation of painters who would become the Impressionists, including Claude Monet, Alfred Sisley, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Rousseau died on December 22, 1867 in Barbizon, France. Today, the artist’s works are held in the collections of the Louvre Museum in Paris, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, among others.
