View of Genzano

Camille Corot French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 805

Corot painted this sketch at Lake Nemi, southeast of Rome, in June or July 1843. He adapted the view for two paintings, View of Genzano with Rider and Peasant (2009.400.30) and Genzano: Goatherd and Village (Phillips Collection, Washington). Corot is thought to have given both to friends, but he kept this sketch until the end of his life.
