Bacchante dans un paysage (1865-1870)

Corot, Jean-Baptiste-Camille (1796-1875)

Bacchante dans un paysage (Bacchante in a Landscape)
Oil on canvas, 30.8 x 61.5 cm
Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York

This painting is closely related to Bacchante by the Sea, also in the Museum’s collection, which is dated 1865. However, the anatomy of the figure is not resolved and the sketchiness suggests that it is not a finished work, despite the signature. (MET)
