Until 11 Sept 2005. While the 20th century may have revolutionised the history of art, the 19th century paved the way for most of the experimentation that shook up the art establishment. And while Fournier, Marx, Byron and Shelley were pushing forward the world of ideas, Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot was among those leading a new wave in art. With his romantic landscapes he took the first steps toward Impressionism, a movement that changed the face of art and opened the doors of perception to most of the 20th centurys pioneers. Corot studied under the French master Michallon, who gave him an appreciation of accuracy, especially in terms of the way light spreads through landscapes.
