  • Landscape with a Cave
    Théodore Caruelle d'Aligny (French, 1798–1871)
    Oil on canvas; 24 1/2 x 18 in. (62.2 x 45.7 cm)
    Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Collection, Wolfe Fund, 1989 (1989.138)

    Like Corot, with whom he often sketched in the mid-1820s, Aligny executed oil studies out-of-doors, primarily as exercises that were not intended for exhibition. This work, inscribed to his friend the artist Théophile-Emmanuel Duverger (1821–1898), is evidently an independent study. It is similar to other landscapes painted during the artist's sojourn in Italy in the mid-1830s.
