THE LANDSCAPES OF COROT
With the exception of Turner no landscape
painter enjoys more universal popularity than Corot.
In his native France, in Germany, Holland, America,
and Great Britain his poetic canvases are much
sought after and admired, while his influence on
present-day landscape art is unquestionable.
The Editor has in preparation an important work
on the landscapes of Corot, dealing more especially
with the later and finest period of the master’s art,
which will form a companion volume to “ Turner’s
Water-Colours at Farnley Hall ” issued last year.
There will be thirty plates in facsimile colours made
direct from carefully _selected examples in well-known
public and private collections in France, England,
and elsewhere, and every effort is being made to
ensure the reproductions being as perfect as possible.
Mr. D. Croal Thomson, author of “ The Barbizon
School ” and the well-known authority on the works
of Corot, is contributing the letterpress.
