Landscape is a beautiful original etching realized by Camille Corot in the middle of XIX Century. Perfect conditions, platemark is present.

It represents a natural landscape with some trees and small buildings realized by the artist during one of his stands in Italy; these influential years saw him painting the city of Rome and its countryside, as well as Naples and Ischia. It was a happy time for Corot, during which he declared to a friend, "All I really want to do in life ... is to paint landscapes. This firm resolve will stop me from any serious attachments. That is to say, I shall not get married."

Camille Corot (Paris, 1796 - Paris 1875) was an influential 19th century French painter who is best known for his landscape paintings. His artistic style inspired many Impressionists. From 1825 to 1828, Corot lived in Italy and honed his artistic skills. In the 1850s, Corot began to paint in a softer style, using a restricted palette of colors. Collectors and dealers were scrambling to buy his work as the 1850s progressed. Corot was in close contact with and influenced by painters of the realistic Barbizon school, such as Jean-François Millet, Théodore Rousseau and Charles-François Daubigny. Corot's landscapes and plein air sketches also served to inspire Impressionist painters. Devoted to painting, Corot continued to work throughout his life, producing more than 3,000 pictures during his career. In the 1860s, he also experimented with photography and printmaking and used a technique called cliché-verre to combine the two.
