|In this exhibition, the main theme is for exploring the development of
French modern landscape painting through the motif,“Trees” From the ancient
period, “Tree” in the paintings were given mlti-roles, and painted as “Tree
of Life” in the Old testament, “Yggdrasil”in the mythologies in the North
Europe, and “the Tree of Jesse” presenting the genealogy of Jesus Christ.
In the history of French paintings, landscapes have been a part of background
of paintings. However, the artists of Ecole de Barbizon who loved to paint
the nature itself, focused on “Threes” as a main motif of their paintings.
