Corot: A New View

Where Paris - - Arts & Attractions -

The Musée Mar­mot­tan Monet is host­ing an ex­hi­bi­tion de­voted to a lit­tle-known as­pect of the work of the 19th cen­tury artist Camille Corot, his paint­ings of the fig­ure, of­fer­ing a new in­sight into this painter known for his land­scapes. The show en­ti­tled Corot, the Painter and his Mod­els, brings to­gether some 60 paint­ings of de­pic­tions of his close re­la­tions as well as of fa­mous artist’s mod­els of the time like Emma Do­bigny. The show aims to demon­strate the di­ver­sity and ver­sa­til­ity of Corot’s pro­duc­tion in this do­main as well as the ma­jor role these por­traits of mod­els played in the emer­gence of modern paint­ing. The works be­ing show­cased em­anate from some of the most pres­ti­gious pub­lic and pri­vate col­lec­tions in Europe and United States and in­clude mas­ter­pieces like The Woman with the Pearl and the Lady in Blue from the Lou­vre as well as works that have rarely been pre­sented, notably some of his nudes. - P.V. Show­ing through to July 8th 2 rue Louis Boilly (16th), 01 44 96 50 33
