Born, 1796, Died, 1875. His peculiar style was not at first appreciated, but has worked a revolution in Art. Jean Rousseau says of him: "To surprise nature; to express it on the wing amid the eternal movement of things, and to that end to confine himself to leading traits. To insist on these and sacrifice the rest. This was Corot." Medals, 1833, 1848, 1855; Legion of Honor, 1846; Medal, 1867, E.U.; Officer Legion of Honor; Special Medal of Honor from the Artists of France, 1875. [P. 19.]
