Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot - circa 1869-1870
680 x 1202 • 217 KB
Although Corot is mainly known as a landscape painter, he painted altogether about thirty nudes, all of women, most of which are in public collections. The rather unatomical style of Corot's nudes puzzled many of his colleagues, including Ingres. There are three other very similar works, one of which is in the Pushkin Museum, Moscow. It is thought that the Thyssen Bornemisza work might be a study for the larger canvas. The other two works are in private collections.
