"To me, art is an expression of the rapture of being…
hopefully unveiling a fragment of the radiance within all form.
I believe that art can awaken the soul
to the timeless presence of beauty and truth.” — Arian
Young Girl Reading (c.1868). Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (French, 1796–1875). Oil on paperboard on wood. National Gallery of Art.
In the 1850s, Corot began painting the silvery, feathery landscapes that brought him such popularity-and were frequently forged, even in his own lifetime. Still later, for his own pleasure, he painted figures, which he seldom exhibited.
