Le Havre – The Artists – Corot, Jean-Baptiste Camille

This page forms part of a series of pages dedicated to the many artists who worked in Le Havre. A full list of all the artists with a link to their works can be found at the bottom of this page.

Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796 – 1875) was a French painter of the Realism movement. He travelled extensively between France and Italy.

Although he did paint in a few cities in Normandy, one only in Le Havre (and three at the next-door-city of Sainte-Adresse), most of his works centers around Italy.
