Undergrowth landscape by Jean-Jean Cornu, dated 1857
Jean-Jean Cornu (Chenôve 1819 - 1876) is a French illustrator and landscape painter, known for his small formats representing the Côte d'Or. Acid greens predominate in his palette, he painted mainly landscapes of the Jura.
Although originally from Burgundy, Cornu sometimes painted in Franche-Comté, so that his accomplished technique and attention to detail were noticed by Gustave Courbet, whom he probably met as early as 1868/69.
In summer of 1873, Courbet went into exile in Switzerland and Cornu followed him for a while, as evidenced by some views of Valais signed by Courbet and now clearly attributed to Jean-Jean Cornu.
