作品名称：Orpheus Leading Eurydice from the Underworld (1861)
艺术家：Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (法国, 1796 - 1875)
卡米尔·柯罗 (Camille Corot) 生前因其空灵、梦幻的风景而深受喜爱，这些风景经常将神话中的场景与对观察到的自然的非常个人化的解释结合起来。 克劳德·莫奈自己说，“这里只有一位大师：柯罗”。
在这幅画中，传说中的音乐家奥菲斯——他欺骗了希腊众神，让他找回了被蛇咬死的心爱的妻子——温柔地带领她离开冥界。 在古代，人们相信死者仍然以灵魂的形式存在，在这里可以看到他们三五成群地聚集在精致的树木下。 伟大的音乐爱好者柯罗为这部作品注入了一种忧郁的抒情意味，暗示了故事的悲剧结局：俄耳甫斯在到达人间之前回头看欧律狄刻时，永远失去了她。
柯罗对色彩的极其微妙的运用增强了过滤后的现实感。 他敲击出一种渴望甜美的音调和弦，小心翼翼地调整狭窄的灰色、绿色和蓝色范围。 Orpheus Leading Eurydice from the Underworld 期待这位艺术家的标志性画作《纪念品》和《回忆录》，其中柯罗去除了所有叙事元素，让他的风景画成为“纯粹”的物体。（机器翻译）
Camille Corot was much beloved during his lifetime for his ethereal, dreamy landscapes that often combined scenes from mythology with a very personal interpretation of nature observed. Claude Monet himself said, "There is only one master here: Corot."
In this painting, the fabled musician Orpheus--who beguiled the Greek gods to allow him to retrieve his beloved wife, who had been fatally bitten by a snake--leads her tenderly from the underworld. In ancient times, it was believed that the deceased continued to exist as spirits, seen here gathered in small groups beneath the delicate trees. Corot, a great music lover, has imbued this work with a sense of melancholy lyricism that hints at the tragic end of the story: Orpheus loses Eurydice forever when he turns to look at her before reaching the world of the living.
The sense of filtered reality is enhanced by Corot's extraordinarily subtle use of color. He strikes a wistfully sweet tonal chord, carefully modulating a narrow range of grays, greens, and blues. Orpheus Leading Eurydice from the Underworld looks forward to the artist's signature paintings, the Souvenirs and Memoires, in which Corot removes all narrative elements and lets his landscapes stand as "pure" objects.
