A Wagon in the Plains of Artois (1871)

Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot: A Wagon in the Plains of Artois

This is one of five small paintings by Corot in the National Gallery thought to have been painted during the artist's trip to the Artois region of north-east France between April and July 1871. He painted this picture in May 1871 during his stay with his friend and biographer, Alfred Robaut, in Douai. [The National Gallery UK]
