Antique Framed Oil Painting on Canvas by Joseph Caron (1866-1944) is an excellent example of impressionist interpretation on a natural theme.  This work is entitled Valley in the Fontainbleau Forest and dated 1926.  Depicting an Autumn period, Caron has captured the subtle nuances of the forest preparing for sleep during the winter.  Survives in its original frame.
Caron was a Belgian draftsman and painter known mainly for his depiction of forests, landscapes and portraits.  He studied at the Academy of Brussels then was trained by Jean-Baptiste Degreef, a second-generation representative from the School of Tervuren.  His early works followed the style of the Barbizon School. He was clearly familiar with the works of that group of French painters and over time his work evolved into the direction of impressionism. His paintings, made with a generous palette, are characterized by diffused light and form, with a palette of autumn colours. He often painted landscapes and forest views in the forest of Zinnik and the forest around Fontainebleau, but also painted the occasional cityscape or lovely animated scenes.
