Corot painted the exterior of Mantes Cathedral in several of his works but interior scenes were not usually subjects of his. This interior is reminiscent of many Dutch church interiors. He produced only three known paintings of church interiors; St Mark's in Venice, this work and an interior of Sens Cathedral.

Our Approach:
Here at The Athenaeum, we work very hard to make this site a sanctuary from the commercial web. We want to provide 99% of our content for free (and currently, *all* of it is free), and not to blast you with advertising. However, we are not a rich company or foundation. This site is a labour of love produced over many years by a couple of people. Since late 2000 when we started the site, we have invested thousands of dollars of our personal money to keep it going. Currently, the hosting service costs us about $200 a month. If you would like to support The Athenaeum, you can donate directly through Paypal below, or shop using any of the links on this page.
