Romantic   •   Jean Baptiste Camille Corot @ Wikipedia

Camille Corot (1796-1875) is considered an important landscape painter of his time, in addition he created remarkable female portraits .

After an apprenticeship in cloth trade Corot decided at the age of 26 for painting. Throughout his life he was in close contact with the painters of his epoch, whom he also supported materially.

Bright colors dominate the landscapes of the French painter. As a member of the "Barbizon School" he was committed to a realistic depiction of nature, but at the same time his paintings are extremely harmonious. This is due largely to the renunciation of dramatic moments in favor of a factual and yet graceful landscape representation, such as in the picture "The Pâquis Quay in Geneva" or "The outer port of La Rochelle". Especially the latter painting already reminds of the impressive simplicity of a Giorgio Morandi (1890 to 1964).

Corot is considered a pioneer of impressionism, his portrait of the woman "The beautiful girl of Gascony" has even remarkable similarities to Pablo Picasso's portrayals of women from the twenties on.

Corot was also contemporary William Turner , who is also considered a pioneer of modernity. A greater contrast than that between the exuberantly expressive Turner and the reduced impressionistic-looking Corot is hard to imagine, yet both refer in their very individual way far ahead on the art of the 20th century. © Meisterdrucke
