Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot Quotations



"Don't imitate, don't follow the others, or else you will lag behind them." -- Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot

"Beauty in art is truth bathed in an impression received from nature. I am struck upon seeing a certain place. While I strive for conscientious imitation, I yet never for an instant lose the emotion that has taken hold of me."

"Never lose the first impression which has moved you." -- Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot

'Listen to the advice of others, but follow only what you understand and can unite in your own feeling. Be firm, be meek, but follow your own convictions. It is better to be nothing than an echo of other painters. " -- Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot

"I hope with all my heart there will be painting in heaven." -- Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot

"Art is nature as seen through a temperament." -- Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot
