Danses virgiliennes
Vers 1855 - 1860
H. : 0,55 m. ; L. : 0,73 m.

Cette bacchanale s'inscrit dans une tradition du paysage historique, héritée de Poussin et de Claude Lorrain.
À partir des années 1850, Corot a peint des compositions lyriques de ce genre, dont l'atmosphère brumeuse et les lointains pâles annoncent certaines visions symbolistes.
