Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796-1875)
“With a piece of tree, Corot will say everything”, Claude Monet wrote, he was one of his many disciples. Then the same Monet explained another time: “there is only one master, Corot. We are nothing in comparison, nothing.” Words confirmed by Edgar Degas: “he is still the greatest, he anticipated everything.” This is what the glory of Corot was and still is, universally admired as an art genius. All international museums exhibit his works nowadays.
