Corot's paintings form a link between the classical landscape tradition and the French Impressionist movement. Trained in the former, French painter Jean Baptiste Camille Corot took the innovative approach of sketching out -of-doors attempting to capture an immediate response to nature. These sketches were later worked up into paintings in his studio. It is believed he was influenced in this by English painter John Constable. The French Impressionists later produced completed paintings out-of-doors as opposed to simply sketches.
