Italian Woman
Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot

Best known as a landscape painter, in his final years Corot turned increasingly to depicting models in his studio. This half-length figure is among his most monumental. The artist has imbued his sitter with grandeur and the calm dignity of an Italian Renaissance noblewoman.
