He who knows how to appreciate colour relationships, the influence of one colour on another, their contrasts and dissonances, is promised an infinitely diverse imagery.

    After all these years I feel like hearing for the first time of Corot, thanks to you, Charley. Number 3 of Jean-Baptiste (John the Baptist)reflects the gentleness of his character. One of the many extraordinary things I learned about him is his birth date. In the archives it is registered Messidor 28, which was according to the French Republican Calender used from late 1793 to 1805, converted to the 16th of July 1796. Until the age of 26 he was a wigmaker!
    He died of a stomach disorder.

    Corot told me: Never lose the first impression which has moved you.
    I’m telling him: I won’t.
