The Fisherman's Cottage

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description Corot first visited the Normandy coast in the early 1820s and often returned thereafter. Since he did not visit the coast in 1871, this must represent a memory of an earlier stay based on studies or simply on his recollections. He concentrates on the rustic cottages and picturesque fisher-folk of the region, ignoring all signs of tourism.
