Rubens, Giorgione, Klee and Corot have painted it; Jean Cocteau has turned it into film.
However, figure to yourself Corot fully embarked on his career as a painter.
By Corot there is but one painting at Chantilly, but it is one of his finest works.
The scenery is soft and silvery in tone, like the landscape of a Corot.
As a landscape painter he does not belong to the family of Corot and Dupr.
Corot took many a long walk with him over narrow, unfrequented paths.
Hung in a gallery among other pictures, a Corot does not clamour for notice.
Corot also took the brilliant opportunity of the hours of sleep.
So with a Corot picture; its quietness is the very antipodes of stagnation.
A great-granddaughter of Fragonard, she seems to have inherited his talent; Corot and Renoir forcibly appealed to her.
