Landscape with Bridge

Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Inscription Credit
Description In his late career, Corot regularly painted "souvenirs" or memories of sites that he had visited earlier in his life. Around thirty (or one-fifth) of his exhibited works during the last twenty years of his life included the word "souvenir" in the title. Here, the artist represents the bridge and 12th-century church of this small village about seven miles from Fontainebleau. The silvery light is suggestive of the filtering of an image through memory.
