Charles-François Daubigny was a painter of the Barbizon school. He was a pupil to his father Edmond François Daubigny and to his uncle, the miniaturist Pierre Daubigny.

He started out as a tradition painter and he first exhibited at the Salon in Paris in 1838. His style changed after he moved to Barbizon in 1843 and most of all after he met Camille Corot in 1852. He painted on his boat at the Seine and the Oise, often near Auvers.

In 1866 he had visited England and in 1870 he went there again because of the Franco-Prussian War. In London he met Claude Monet and together they travelled to The Netherlands. Back in Auvers he also met Paul Cézanne. His son Karl Daubigny (1846-1886) also became a painter.
