Camille Corot – part 15



Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796 – 1875) was a French landscape and portrait painter, as well as printmaker. He is regarded as a pivotal figure in landscape painting; his vast output simultaneously referencing the Neo-Classical tradition and anticipating the ‘plein-air’ innovations of Impressionism.

For full biographical notes see Part 1, and for earlier works see Parts 1 to 14 also.
