Published by Cadart for the Gazette des Beaux-Arts

This is the last etching Daubigny made at the end of 1877, he died February 19 of the following year 1878.
Cadart published the etching in 1878 together with the obituary article on Daubigny. He explained that Daubigny intended to do more work on the etching, in fact he wanted to tone down the haystacks and the tree-covered mountainsides that bound the horizon: death did not leave him time to do so.
As famous for his original etchings as for his paintings, Charles Daubigny holds a prime position in mid nineteenth century French art. A leading artist of the great Barbizon landscape school, Charles Francois Daubigny directly influenced the following generation of Impressionist painters. He is considered an important precursor of impressionism.
Daubigny settled in Barbizon to work outside in nature. Important was his meeting with Camille Corot in 1852. In 1870 in London he met Claude Monet, and together they left for the Netherlands. Back in Auvers, he met Paul Cézanne, another important impressionist. It is assumed that these younger painters have been influenced by Daubigny.
