We are pleased to announce the collaboration of the noted French scholar, Martin Dieterle, Claire Lebeau, and Jill Newhouse on the creation of a catalogue raisonné of the drawings of Jean Baptiste Camille Corot (French, 1796-1875).

While the Robaut L’Oeuvre de Corot catalogue raisonné of oil paintings is highly illustrated, few drawings are recorded or reproduced. We are planning to establish a comprehensive photo archive of drawings which will provide the basis for further scholarship. To this end, we would be very grateful to receive documents and information about drawings by, or attributed to, Corot. This information will be kept strictly confidential and will be used for scholarly purposes only.

All new documents and information should be directed to Jill Newhouse and will become part of this joint archive with Martin Dieterle and Claire Lebeau which will be located in New York. It will include the drawings listed in Robaut, which we will verify and catalogue further, as well as previously unpublished works.

We thank you in advance for your interest in this project.
