Fontainebleau is a painting inspired in the 1865 Monet`s "Le Pavé de Chailly, Fontainebleau". Monet`s painting was done directly from nature, in front of the subject, in the tradition of the Barbizon school. I searched the place where it was originally painted in google Earth. Using the Street View tool I took a similar and painted it in a large panel.
This painting tries to dialogue of the tradition of landscape painting that started in Barbizon in the 19th century, using the modern techniques of dislocation in space.
