CAMILLE JEAN-BAPTISTE COROT (French / 1796-1875)

Camille Jean-Baptiste Corot was the artist who more than any other paved the way for Impressionism. The leader of the Barbizon School, who revolutionised landscape painting in France by painting en plein air rather than in the studio, Corot drew his inspiration from the English painter John Constable. Corot was a printmaker as well as an artist, producing 14 etchings and various prints in other media, notably cliché-verre. He also authorised others to make interpretative etchings of his paintings.
