Ville d’Avray is an incredible 49 x 65 cm (19 x 25 in.) oil painting by the 19th-century artist Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot. The original artwork was painted around 1865, and it now belongs to the National Gallery of Art in Washington. The 1860s were one of the most critical decades of Camille Corot’s long career. During the 1850s, he began to reach his artistic maturity, and in the following years, he received Eugene Delacroix’s praise and overall institutional recognition. Ville d’Avray is an excellent example of the painter’s breathtaking landscapes.
Ville d’Avray was painted in a mid-sized rectangle-shaped canvas. During this artwork’s period, Corot was living in the commune of Ville-d’Avray. The area is situated just 12 kilometers from Paris. It is known that since the 1850s, Camille Corot developed the habit of painting outside or en plein air painting. This was a defining characteristic of his work, and he was deeply dedicated to landscape painting, valuing the act of being on the outside to paint. This habit was also inherited by the Impressionists and was one of the defining characteristics of The Barbizon School. This habit allowed Corot to deeply study his surroundings and various types of vegetation, giving a surprising fidelity to his landscape masterpieces.
Ville d’Avray shows a captivating soft blue painting. Progressively, Camille Corot found a particular and striking way of working with lighting. Through the years, his pictures gained a light aspect, as if he was applying a smoothing filter in his works, often trying to paint places from reminiscence and filling the gaps with his imagination. The calming atmosphere found in Ville d’Avray is an excellent example of the distinctive lighting he developed and later became a significant influence on most French paintings.
As usual, Corot placed his signature on the lower-left corner of the picture, here with black paint. The lower area of the painting is dominated by cold green grass accompanied by fast strokes of light blue and yellow. Corot creates an interesting visual pattern on this area through the leaves, making it compelling and pleasing for the viewer. From this bank, two long trees rise against a beautiful and enormous lake. By the other side of the river is a stunning blue sky, some buildings, and cold green trees.
