Charles-Francois Daubigny (February, 15, 1817 - February, 19, 1878) was a French artist. He was one of the members of the Barbizon school. He is most famous for his numerous thoroughly worked-out landscapes with trees, river and some ducks. There was even a little joke, that if Daubigny liked his work he would add one or two extra ducks on the canvas. Among his most prominent pictures are the following: "Return of the Flock" (1878), "Springtime" (1857, exhibited in Louvre), "Moonlight" (1865). He is considered to be a major influence on such Impressionist painters as Claude Monet and Paul Cezanne.
