Corot to Monet, at the National Gallery

I saw this exhibition yesterday. It is a superb retrospective of 19th century French landscape. Don’t expect much in terms of Impressionism, but what a delight to browse rooms full of the works of Corot, Diaz de la Peña, Boudin, the “master of the sky” (below, Beach at Trouville) and many lesser known artists.

Hurry, it closes on September 20!

The National Gallery, London.

    Yes, Ellen, I am indeed fortunate, though there’s a price to pay for everything… As for Boudin, he is one of my favorite seascape painters. This was the merit of this exhibition: highlight artists who are usually overshadowed by the Impressionists.

    Dear Catherine,

    I just love Corot and the picture on top is so appealing to me. As I wrote on ECW, it seems to me you are so lucky to be able to world-city hop!

    Ellen
