The Quais des Paquis, Geneva is an incredible 34 x 46 cm oil painting by the 19th-century artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. The work was created around 1842 and is part of the Musée d’Art et d’Histoire Collection at Geneva, Venice. The work was created in the middle of Camille Corot’s career. His training started in the 1820s, he began to uptake professional work by the 1830s, and in the 1840s, he was already really close to his maturity: the stunning landscapes of the regions around Paris, some based on his trips to Italy, and a variety of places that are just become too exquisite under Corot’s brush not to be contemplated.
The Quais des Paquis, Geneva, was painted in a small-to-mid vertical canvas. The work shows many of the characteristics found in Camille Corot’s later work, such as the choice of landscape painting for the exploration of lighting, the use of a chromatic palette that delivers vibrating colors, and well-thought color harmony. It also shows the use of thick paint, giving this picture a strong sense of materiality and weight, some of the traits that were only progressively emphasized through the years in Modernist painting. In addition, Corot’s signature is placed more subtly and is located in the shadow extending from the picture’s left side.
The Quais des Paquis, Geneva depicts a location close to the heart of Genova. The lower section of the work is cut through with a diagonal line, a stone wall that separates the land from the water. A person wearing white vestments is seen with a fishing rod on the composition’s left side. Beyond the stone wall, there is a yellow road. The small wall structure projects soft shadows on the floor. Up the street is a line of trees with beautiful and long branches. A person is walking close to those trees, and there is another wall to her left side. The trees are balanced in the composition by the boat passing through the sea, close to the sitting fisherperson.
The boat has three white sails and three figures on top of it. The water that it is sailing in is a very light blue. Close to the composition’s center, in the structure near the sea, there is an open window painted with an intense blue that contrasts significantly with this softer tone. Beyond, in the horizon line, there is a group of houses and trees. Small mountainous formations rise, painted in purple and thickly. The sky has soft white clouds and is calm and bright.
