Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

Paris 1796 - 1875 Ville d'Avray

Forêt de Fontainebleau - Au plateau brûlé


oil on paper, laid down on canvas

canvas: 9 7/8 by 12 5/8 in.; 25 by 32 cm. 

framed:  17 x 19 3/4 in.; 43 by 50.3 cm. 

The paper is flat. It is supported on the reverse by a canvas, which is stable on its stretcher. The painting appears to be in overall good condition, with details, colors, and atmospheric tones well preserved. The varnish is crisp and clear, and much of the thick impasto throughout remains intact. Under UV: Retouching is visible at the extreme edges, largely near the corners, for example in the upper left corner and along the upper left edge and in the lower right corner. Otherwise, the retouching is very cosmetic, with only a few spots scattered in the sky and some finely applied spots in the rocks, concentrated in the lower foreground. Some of these retouches in the rocks may be only strengthening to some of the darker tones. The painting is ready to hang. Offered in a gold painted frame with some decorative details.
