The whole world called him “Papa Corot”. Way to emphasize that this great painter of the 19th century, indisputable master of impressionists, was also a wonderful person, with inexhaustible generosity and good mood. This day of May 1864, he probably left home at dawn as usual; he could not help but add to his study this phrase that makes him more alive than life: “I have a very hollow stomach”! An archive.
