Mother and Child

Camille Corot French

Not on view

This small panel, probably done in the 1860s, was evidently well known and admired in Corot's circle of friends. Both Constant Dutilleux (1807–1865) and Charles Desavary (1837–1885), two painters living in Arras, a town in northern France that Corot often visited, copied the painting. About 1873 Corot gave it to his patron Cléophas, who had provided him with a supplementary studio where he could work undisturbed.
