Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

Jean-Baptiste-Camille  Corot

(1796 - 1875)
Born: Paris, France
Style: Romanticism
Famous Works:
  • Florence, Seen from the Boboli-Gardens (after 1834)
  • Morning, The Dance of the Nymphs (c. 1850)
  • Ville d'Avray (c. 1867)
Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot is considered one of the greatest nineteenth century French landscape artists. His work bridged the traditions of the Classical landscape painters and the first Impressionists in France. He possessed a strong foundation in traditional art education that is reflected throughout many of his works. This foundation, in combination with his passion and insight, enabled Corot to create successful paintings all throughout his career. He was inspired by generations of painters before him, including Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorraine. From these masters Corot acquired his sensitivity to light and balance in his compositions. He also inspired artists after him; not only the Impressionists, but also his contemporary Eugène Delacroix, who thought Corot was discovering new methods of painting nature. Corot portrayed an intense light and atmospheric weight in the scenes he chose to illuminate. He painted in the outdoors at his father's country house in Ville-d'Avray outside of Paris, working the paint on his palette to replicate the effects the sun had on the trees, hills, and buildings before him. This obsession with the effects of light, directly observed and translated into opaque pigment, was passed along to his younger contemporaries towards the end of his life. Édouard Manet, Camille Pissarro, and Claude Monet all soaked in the lesson Corot offered on the magic sparkle of sunlight on their beloved French countryside, starting the next revolution in painting and affecting artists in the next generations.

I might have gotten this but if this is beginner's ballet (based upon editor's description) why does the cover illustration have a girl en pointe? That doesn't happen until year two or three even. It will give girls the wrong impression--that going en pointe is easy, fast and will happen almost automatically. The cover illustration is enough to not get this book.

This lead holder is visually very similar to the MUCH more expensive Rotring 600 2mm lead holder. It is all- metal, and is very nice to work with. The internal lead tube appears to be brass. The finish, however, is delicate. Very easy to scratch. But since this is a professional tool and not jewelry, that doesn't really matter. Especially at this price. I bought a bunch!

I like this product very much and have been using it for year's to make all kinds of window clings. I just wish the Plaid company would bring back more of the shimmers and sparkle type paints. However,I have found you can add your own sparkle with glitter..I use many different types of glitters and my window clings are beautiful.
