Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot (1796–1875)
Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot was a French landscape painter. He was a regular contributor to the Salon during his lifetime, and in 1846 was decorated with the cross of the Legion of Honour. Of the painters classed in the Barbizon school Corot will live the longest, and will continue to occupy the highest position.

Alexina Legoux
Vers 1840
H. : 0,36 m. ; L. : 0,27 m.

Modiste employée chez Madame Sennegon, la soeur de l'artiste, Alexina Legoux était réputée pour sa beauté. Comme pour le portrait de la nièce de Corot, Claire Sennegon (Louvre), un des charmes du tableau réside dans le décor de pein air, ici seulement suggéré, qui contrebalance la sage immobilité de la pose.
