An exhibition devoted to the works of Barbizon school painter Théodore Rousseau is on display through September 11, 2016 at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. Aptly titled "Unruly Nature," the exhibition hones in on his wild and tempestuous landscapes, which garnered him much popularity in life among other Romantic artists and writers. From the Getty Museum's website: "Bringing together about seventy-five paintings and drawings, this international loan exhibition explores the astonishing technical and stylistic variety of his work, revealing him to be one of the most exciting, experimental, and affecting artists of his day."
