Camille Magnus, born in Paris in 1850, is claimed to be one of the most outstanding representatives of the late Barbizon school. His style wears strong signs of the influence of his master Diaz Dela Pena. Magnus has often used formal solutions which was worked out and succesfully used by Dela Pena. His works were exhibited for the first time on the Paris Salon in 1875.
