Article Wikipedia article A pivotal figure in landscape painting, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot was an influential and prolific artist, producing over 3, works during his lifetime, and inspiring countless numbers of forgeries and copies. Although he was not especially interested or gifted in art at a young age, he decided to make the professional switch from businessman to artist at the age of 26, and inimmediately began with the study of landscapes.
He focused on two types of landscapes, historical landscapes, containing ancient and mythological creatures, and realistic landscapes, mostly of Northern Europe, with faithful renditions of flora and fauna, often mixing the two genres together.
In his travels through Italy to study Renaissance paintings, he was entranced by the light of the countryside, which was to influence his color palette throughout his paintings.
Although he was also entranced by the Italian women, he wrote that his goal in life was to be committed to painting, and thus he had no time for marriage. Inhe was promoted to an officer of the Salon. In his later life, Corot was very financially successful, and he shared his wealth with all those around him.
Inhe donated 2, francs to the Poor of Paris, and a year later he bought a house for his fellow artist Honore Daumier, who by then was blind and destitute. He also donated 10, francs to the widow of another fellow artist, Jean-Francois Millet, to help her support her children.
In the year before his death at age 78, his friends and students, feeling that he was underappreciated and professionally neglected, presented him with a gold medal.
He is a pivotal figure in landscape painting and his vast output simultaneously references the Neo-Classical tradition and anticipates the plein-air innovations of Impressionism. His family were bourgeois people—his father was a wigmaker and his mother a milliner—and unlike the experience of some of his artistic colleagues, throughout his life he never felt the want of money, as his parents made good investments and ran their businesses well.
After his parents married, they bought the millinery shop where his mother had worked and his father gave up his career as a wigmaker to run the business side of the shop. The store was a famous destination for fashionable Parisians and earned the family an excellent income.
Corot was the second of three children born to the family, who lived above their shop during those years. He "was not a brilliant student, and throughout his entire school career he did not get a single nomination for a prize, not even for the drawing classes.
It was in this region that Corot made his first paintings after nature. At nineteen, Corot was a "big child, shy and awkward.
He blushed when spoken to. Emotionally, he was an affectionate and well-behaved son, who adored his mother and trembled when his father spoke. Later Corot stated, "I told my father that business and I were simply incompatible, and that I was getting a divorce.
Perhaps out of boredom, he turned to oil painting around and began immediately with landscapes. Starting in after the death of his sister, Corot began receiving a yearly allowance of francs which adequately financed his new career, studio, materials, and travel for the rest of his life.
He immediately rented a studio on quai Voltaire.Camille Corot was one of the new genre's pioneers. The town of Ville d'Avray, on the outskirts of Paris, was blessed with a wealth of natural beauty, and Corot painted its landscapes, with its forests and lakes, again and again throughout his career.
