(Paris, 1796 - Paris,1875)


L' étang au bord de la fôret - around 1865
Pencil

Other view :


Various paintings from Corot depict this subject, the artist has often reproduced these landscapes, we know Le batelier de Morfontaine et Souvenir de Morfontaine, exhibited at the Musée du Louvre. This drawing probably executed outside, is beautifully made, the perspective and the surroundings are most poetic, this landscape are reminiscent of the views painted by Corot at Morfontaine, this drawing is likely to have been executed in this place, where alternate ponds, glades and the forest, undoubtedly these romantic landscapes have strongly inspired Corot.
