Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Active in late-19th, early 20th-century France, Henri-Joseph Harpignies did landscape painting that combined Realism with influences of the Barbizon School and Tonalism, especially the composition and coloration of Cámille Corot (1796-1875). 

Harpignies  began his career in 1846, when he was 27 years old.  He was born in Valenciennes to a family that ran a sugar beet factory.  As a child he had only a few art lessons, and did not turn to any serious focus on (showing 500 of 8969 characters).
