Though Corot had resolved at age 30 to dedicate his life to landscapes, he painted figures throughout his career. Figures were necessary to populate his landscapes, but more importantly they presented formal challenges that allowed Corot to find creative solutions to basic artistic problems. “The study of the nude,” he advised his students, “is the best lesson that a landscape painter can have. If someone knows how, without any tricks, to get down a figure, he is able to make a landscape; otherwise he can never do it.”
