L’Atelier De Corot, Jeune Femme A La Mandoline [Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot]
Towards the end of his life, eminent French artist, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796 - 1875), created a series of six emotive paintings depicting models in his studio. At this point in his career, Corot often produced melancholic scenes that were thick with emotion and uncertainty.
In this example, entitled ‘L’Atelier De Corot, Jeune Femme A La Mandoline’, we see a young seated woman holding a mandolin in her right hand while thoughtfully staring into the yonder. On her left, an empty multi-coloured chair, which perhaps symbolises absence or loss, is illuminated by the light.
This vintage print dates to around 1950 and accurately represents the original.
