Four Times of Day

The National Gallery in London is celebrating acquiring The Four Times of Day by Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot, which the Gallery boasts is "A Christmas present for the nation" (CLICK). Corot painted these four large panels to decorate the studio at Fontainebleau of his friend and fellow painter Alexandre-Gabriel Decamps. They represent Morning, Noon, Evening and Night in that order. Corot completed the cycle in one week. I've combined the four panels into a single graphic so that you can view them side by side.
