Inscribed on the back: 'Étude donnée par Corot à son ami Lapito'. A study made in the open air, and used as the basis for the large picture of 1826-7 (National Gallery, Ottawa). Although Corot had only been painting for three or four years when this sketch was done, he already reveals a full command of tonal painting and the ability to capture effects of light and atmosphere.

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.
