beauty in the small effects

Corot is such a powerful master.  Saw this detail of one of his Ville d’Avray paintings and was struck by how beautiful and amazing is his abstraction even in the smallest aspects.  Just the way that he evokes the faces of the two girls by dark blots that indicate their eyes — isn’t it mind-blogging in lovely simplicity!

He makes it look so easy.
