This has been identified as a copy after the artist and has a forged signature. It is one of many sketches that Corot made during his first trip to Italy and which he brought back with him to Paris. They were not suitable for public exhibition and there was no commercial market for them and Corot kept most of them in his studio. Many of the sketches were still in his possession at the time of his death.

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.
