    LITERATURE:
    Terence Mullaly, The Barbizon School, II. Rousseau, Apollo Magazine, vol.LXII, no.366, August 1955, p.47, fig.IV, illustrated

    An early example of a direct study from nature by Rousseau. In his article Mullaly says "A few simple but remarkably accomplished small oils that he painted at this time in the countryside around Paris are, in fact, extant. Among these his "View of Paris" (Fig.IV), which was almost certainly produced before he was eighteen, that is, before 1830, is one of the most instructive and pleasing." (op.cit.)
