Landscape with a Cave

Théodore Caruelle d'Aligny French

Not on view

Like Camille Corot, with whom he often sketched in the mid-1820s, Aligny executed oil studies out-of-doors, primarily as private 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.
