This painting, Souvenir de Mortefontaine (1864) is by French artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875). Corot was from the Barbizon school of painting; a movement of realist artists. His early paintings were realistic. His following works had more romantic elements. (The romantic artists painted with a dramatic and exotic style.) Later Corot’s art slanted toward impressionism. Corot was much admired by the impressionists. This painting’s landscape is painted with broad strokes of paint and Corot underscored light and luminosity. The light sifts through the trees. The scene is serene and the reflections on the water are soft and restrained.
