The notion of the pastoral ideal is made explicit in the work of Jacque. In 1849, along with Jean-François Millet, Jacque moved to the village of Barbizon, which by then was an established artist’s colony. There he painted, drew, and etched rustic landscapes in which man and nature
coexist in perfect harmony.
