Jean Baptiste Camille Corot is heralded as one of the most important French landscape painters of the nineteenth century. He was born in Paris in 1796 to a wealthy family which insulated him from the concerns that plagued many less financially-endowed artists of the era. He received artistic training from both Achille Etna Michallon and Jean Victor Bertin until 1822 when he traveled to Italy and returned back to France in 1827 when he began the oil paintings of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot began to be exhibited. He would create a large number of paintings over the course of his career as an artist. He became well-known in 1855 after the exhibition of many of his paintings and his reputation has not suffered with the passage of time. Largely considered to be an inspiration and precursor to the Impressionist movement which was rising in popularity soon after his death in 1875, the paintings of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot are landscapes which exhibit a great deal of technical proficiency in their portrayal of scenes inspired by the Neo-Classical background of the artists with whom he had studied early in his career. Though his landscapes were fairly traditional in form, other forms of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot artwork, such as private drawings which were never displayed to the public or exhibited, revealed a personal style which was full of more innovation and displayed some of the characteristics of Impressionism, the beginnings of which Corot never truly approved of in the work of other of his contemporary artists in France. Despite this apparent contradiction in his own work, it was never an issue that bothered Corot evidenced by his continued practice of the traditional landscapes for which he was well-known. There are two fairly clear distinctions in the style of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot oil paintings based on the time and place of their creation. The earlier landscape paintings of Corot often painted during his time in Italy and particularly Rome have a different, more clear and light atmospheric feel than his later paintings. Also, in the earlier paintings of the artist, Corot seems to have concentrated on developing an even tone in each canvas and a made use of a very light palette of colors which was probably achieved by mixing white paint with the colors of his traditional palette. Despite this practice, the paintings of Corot do not appear washed-out and too light based on the style of painting he preferred. When Corot returned to France, his palette gained a deeper and more dark set of tones which were offset by the more delicate style of painting he began to practice with silvery and feathery aspects of the brushwork. Some of the most important pieces of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot artwork are titled: Souvenir de Marcoussis, Chartres Cathedral, The Bridge of Mantes, Recollections of Mortefontaine, Ville d’Avray, Bacchanale, Village Street in Normandy, Gust of Wind, Belfry at Douai, Souvenir of Castel-Gandolfo, and The Monk.
