The three outsiders with respect to the academy were Alexandre Bida, Eugene Frornentin, and Charles-Francois Daubigny
Monet initially went to Fontainebleau to learn the intricacies of landscape painting from his idols, such as Camille Corot and Charles-Francois Daubigny
, but he chose to return specifically to Chailly year after year because he found the village charming.
Corot and Barbizon painters like Charles-Francois Daubigny
(1817-1878), Rousseau, and Jean-Francois Millet (1814-1875), shared a common ideology, approach, and even non-academic training.
He drew from the traditions of the 17th-century Dutch masters, particularly Rembrandt, and the Barbizon school landscape painters Charles Daubigny
and Jules Dupre.
The artists on display include Courbet and Boudin, neither of whom considered himself to be an Impressionist; Eugene Isabey (son of a famous miniaturist) thirty-seven years older than Monet, and a follower of Delacroix; Daubigny
and the Dutchman Johan Jongkind, who worked independently with Millet at Barbizon, a village in the Forest of Fontainebleau.
Emerging in the 1830s, these artists--including Charles Francois Daubigny
and Jean-Francois Millet--shared a devotion to nature, and strove to convey their sense of an idealized natural world, in the face of the rapidly encroaching industrial age.

seascape set a new standard for the painter, more than holding its own with a much smaller, but no less intense Courbet of the much-painted cliffs near Etretat.
