Self-Portrait by Jean-Baptiste Corot (1796-1875, France) | Museum Quality Reproductions | WahooArt.com
This self-portrait may be the one Corot reportedly painted at his parents' request before leaving for a study trip to Italy in 1825. His views of Italy, in which he strove to capture the effects of light, represent a capital phase in his own painting and in the evolution of landscape painting as a whole.
