Did you know?

Claude Monet once said: "There is only one master here—Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothing."


Camille Corot painted this charming woodland scene during the summer of 1842 while visiting Lormes, a small village in the Morvan region of Burgundy. The area was known for its dense woodlands and picturesque falls. Corot included a seated goat shepherd leaning against a curving tree trunk, but instead of commanding the viewers attention, the human presence is overshadowed by the dynamic interlacing forms of the tree trunks and branches that stretch up and across the canvas.
