From Corot to Van Gogh exhibition includes 116 works from various artists. Among them, there are pioneers of open‐air oil painting such as Pierre‐Henri Valenciennes and Thomas Jones, in addition to Turner, Constable, Corot, Rousseau, Courbet, Daubigny, Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Seurat, Van Gogh and Cézanne among many other key names.
