Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot: 'A Flood'

Explore the paintings

A river runs from the left of the picture to the bottom right corner. The restricted colour range is typical of Corot's late work. The predominance of greys combined with the numerous reflections on the surface of the river help to obscure the meeting of land and water.

This late, possibly unfinished, painting was first described in Robaut's 1905 catalogue of Corot's work as 'Le Cap Boisé', (The Wooded Headland).
