Corot, Jean-Baptiste Camille. 1796-1875

Morning

France, Late 1850s - early 1860s

Corot is a prominent French landscape artist and superb master of values painting based on the subtle gradations of tones from light to dark. In this picture the artist created the effect of spatial depth and light-and-air medium by using colour values. The soft transition from the darker colours of the foreground to the lighter colours of the distance is created through gradations of silvery-green and greyish-blue tones. To the right, the thick spreading crowns of the trees appear as a dark silhouette against the light sky. They are contrasted with the tall trees with twisted trunks, the foliage of which is marked with light broken olive-grey strokes.
