Did you know?

Corot began his career as a draper and his exposure to the colors and textures of fabrics helped him develop an astute aesthetic sense.


With its quiet water and sky, fluffy trees, and other foliage flecked with light, this picture exemplifies the style that won Corot success with a wide public. It was painted during the artist's stay at Arras (about 100 miles north of Paris) in 1871.
