Simon Alexandre Clément Denis

One of the earliest practitioners of painting “en plein air,” Flemish painter Denis (1755–1812) became known for his landscapes that he painted out in open air. Denis' studies and drawings are the first to emphasize direct observation from nature. His sketches, like those of other landscape artists of his time, are more dynamic than his finished works.
