Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796–1875) has been hailed as the most poetic landscape painter of 19th-century France. The development of the artist’s technique and aesthetic was greatly influenced by his two Italian campaigns between 1825 and 1834 and the plein air studies he made during these travels. He considered his first trip to Italy the culmination of his artistic training, focusing on the effects of light on water and the panoramic view—studies he would continue upon his return to France. Corot’s Venise - Vue du Campo Della Carita en Regardant le Dôme de la Salute (1834) showcases the artist’s particular fascination with the city of Venice and his adeptness of treating impressions of light and distance upon space.
