Corot, Jean Baptiste Camille - Forest of Fontainebleau art print

Brandywine General Store


An archival premium Quality art Print of Forest of Fontainebleau by Jean Baptiste-Camille Corot for sale by Brandywine General Store. The artist finished this oil on canvas in 1846. The size of the original artwork is 51 by 35 inches and was gifted to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston by Mrs. Samuel Dennis Warren in 1890 where is still resides today. Corot based this painting on sketches he made in the Forest of Fontainebleau which is just south of Paris. In 1872 he contributed this painting to the auction to help fellow artist Auguste Anastasi who had become blind and of course could no longer paint to support himself. The scene shows more pasture land and large trees than a dense forest. A lone cow is in the creek drinking water while the rest of the herd is fast coming to have their share of the water. Large rocks are scattered throughout the creek, forest and the grassland. An idyllic setting in which to paint. Country Decor art print #167
