    Lecture: Mary Morton on Corot's Figures

    The Barnes Foundation

    2025 Benjamin Franklin Parkway, Philadelphia, PA 19130
    • Saturday June 1st 2019, 11:30am to 12:30pm

    Camille Corot (1796–1875) is best known as a master of landscape painting who bridged the French neoclassical tradition with the impressionist movement of the 1870s. His figure paintings constitute a much smaller portion of his oeuvre, and are less well known.


    However, they are arguably of equal importance to the history of art, in particular for modernists such as Paul Cézanne, Pablo Picasso, and Georges Braque. In this talk, “Not Just a Landscape Painter: Corot’s Figures,” Dr. Mary Morton shares recent research from Corot: Women, an exhibition she curated that was presented at the National Gallery of Art in 2018.
