gThere is only one master here Corot. We are nothing compared to him, nothingh was a phrase spoken by Claude Monet in 1897 that is seemingly unqualified from many great artists of his era. To consider it, most of these great artists were just beginning to mature and develop their own distinctive styles, when the master died. Corot was deemed to be out of touch with the artistic developments of his time and even nearing the end of his life, he disapproved of the confrontational styles of works by Monet and other Intransigents who were eager to capture the walls of the annual Paris Salon. His influence on modern art was so great that in the 1930fs, painter Jacqes Emile Blanche and historian Alfred Barr who just happened to be the founder of the New Yorkfs Museum of Modern Art believed that Corotfs influence was rival to the one of Cezannefs in terms of contributions. This has only ratified the fact that Corot and the recognition of his views and art are long overdue and well deserved.
