The second painting we are studying this term is Corot's The Bridge at Narni, not to be confused with any of his other bridge pictures (Bridge at Mantes etc.).
The Bridge at Narni that you would see if you went to the Louvre. It's an on-the-spot oil sketch that Corot did during his 1820's trip to Italy.
studio version of the painting, which was submitted to the Paris Salon in 1827, is now in the National Gallery of Canada. The painting didn't sell at the Salon, for some reason, but Corot was so fond of it that he kept it hanging on his bedroom wall until his death in 1875. The NGC bought the painting in 1939.
If you click on that link (the National Gallery), you can also click on the "Audioguide" that you'd hear if you went to Ottawa.
So: two Corots in one. Which do you like better?
