Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

French, (1796–1875)
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was a French artist known for his plein-air painting practice and influence on the Impressionist movement. Employing a silvery palette of mauve, grey, and ochre, the artist produced works depicting mythological, biblical, and rustic scenes developed from his outdoor studies. He is known for his interest in balance and precision in light and tonal gradations. Born on July 17, 1796 in Paris, France, Corot traveled extensively throughout the French countryside producing sketches and studies of the landscape, but it was his early visits to paint ruins in Italy during the 1820s that solidified his style.
