Corot was attracted to landscape painting and fascinated by the idea of working out of doors and directly from nature. Corot also studied in the Louvre and got inspiration from two classicizing landscape painters, Michallon and Bertin. Michellon's influence can be gauged in this early figure landscape.

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.
