Жан-Батист-Камиль Коро — французский художник и гравёр, один из самых выдающихся и плодовитых пейзажистов эпохи романтизма, оказавший влияние на импрессионистов. Зарисовки и эскизы Коро ценятся почти столь же высоко, как и законченные картины. Цветовая гамма Коро основана на тонких отношениях серебристо-серых и жемчужно-перламутровых тонов. Известно его выражение — «валёры прежде всего».
