In Fontainebleau Forest: Pines and birch trees in the rocks
The detailed strokes of rocks, pines and birches provide depth with its conifers and rocks of different shapes.
Situated close to Paris, it was connected to the capital by rail in 1849 and came to attract many walkers and artists, like those of the Barbizon school, with which Camille Corot (1796−1875) was associated.
Details like the small figure on the left, which gives an indication of scale and provides some depth, are few in number.
The painter focuses primarily on rendering the volumes and character of the composition of elements through the interplay of values and light. The juxtaposition of colours, which acquire full autonomy, attests Corot’s very modern approach.

Towards a universal language – Calligraphy & Abstraction
The advent of letters, of the alphabet, revolutionized writing. The shift from images to the written word inevitably involved loss, as if abandoning images gave rise to nostalgia for meaning: letters no longer directly carried the meaning conveyed by images. The cost of this shift was a palpable draining of vigor, a dis-incarnation.
