Sigh. Another day, another treasure trove of high resolution masterpieces on the Google Art Project — this one from the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest.

excellent posts as usual… a good choice to revisit your blog! Thanks for posting again!
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.
Thanks, Aelle. Here is a link to 19 high-resolution zoomable Corot images on Google Art Project.
Corot told me: Never lose the first impression which has moved you.
I’m telling him: I won’t.
