PostSubject: The Art History Mystery Challenge No. 38 Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot - A Road Near Arras   Mon Jul 26, 2010 6:21 am

Welcome to our totally disorganized art museum! The challenge is to help us identify all the masterworks in our virtual museum. We'll post a piece of the painting and one clue to get you started. Can you name the artist and the title of the painting?

Pieces of the painting and clues to the artist's identity will be added every 24 hours until we have a winner, then the next painting in our collection will be posted. Feel free to use any resources at your disposal to help in your search. Challenge winners will receive a shiny award badge that we will add below their profile image. You will retain this award until someone else wins the award.

The AHM Challenge is open to all forum members, not just ws oil painters, so join in and have some fun with us!

If you would like to host a AHM Challenge painting; please send a PM to the Challenge Moderator Callie to receive instructions and notice when to post your painting. Be prepared to check in frequently while hosting a challenge!



Clue = Nationality = French

Quote :
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (July 17, 1796 - February 22,
1875) was a French landscape painter and printmaker in etching. Corot
was the leading painter of the Barbizon school of France in the
mid-nineteenth century. He is a pivotal figure in landscape painting and
his vast output simultaneously references the Neo-Classical tradition
and anticipates the plein-air innovations of Impressionism.

Camille Corot was born in Paris in 1796, in a house at 125 Rue du
Bac, now demolished. His family were bourgeois people-his father was a
wigmaker and his mother a milliner-and unlike the experience of some of
his artistic colleagues, throughout his life he never felt the want of
money, as his parents made good investments and ran their businesses
well. After his parents married, they bought the millinery shop where
she had worked and he gave up his career as a wigmaker to run the
business side of the shop. The store was a famous destination for
fashionable Parisians and earned the family an excellent income. Corot
was the middle of three children born to the family, who lived above
their shop during those years.
