Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot 16th July, 1796 - 22nd February, 1875

Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was a French landscape and portrait painter as well as a printmaker in etching. He is a pivotal figure in landscape painting and his vast output simultaneously references the Neo-Classical tradition and anticipates the plein-air innovations of Impressionism.

During his travels he filled numerous sketchbooks with sketches from is open air studies but for a long time, the popularity of his late work overshadowed appreciation of his early studies.
