Le Petit Chaville, near Ville-d'Avray

Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

Le Petit Chaville, near Ville-d'Avray
3 0 c m
actual image size: 31cm x 22cm


Dating from about 1823, this is one of the artist's earliest surviving works, painted out-of-doors in the village of Chaville near Ville d'Avray where Corot's parents had bought a house in 1817. The neat touches of paint, light colour and carefully structured view owe something to the example of Corot's master, Jean-Victor Bertin.
