Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot
Modern (19th century-1945) Painting
(Paris, France, July 17, 1796 - Februry 22, 1875, Paris, France)

The son of a Parisian shopkeeper, the young Corot was hired as a salesman by a cloth merchant, despite his evident gift for drawing. Clearly lacking an aptitude for business, he was already twenty-six when his father gave him an allowance so that he could devote himself entirely to his vocation.
