COROT, Jean-Baptiste Camille
(b. 1796, Paris, d. 1875, Paris)

Corot's Studio

c. 1873
Oil on canvas, 63 x 42 cm
Musée du Louvre, Paris

Toward the end of his life Corot revived the theme of the painter's studio: a model posing, or a gathering of connoisseurs or artists. In a few instances he depicted a young girl seated in front of one of his own pictures, contemplative, or lost in reverie.
