"Montefontein's Memories" is Corot's masterpiece, this painting is full of sad emotions. In the painting, a huge tree occupies one-half of the entire picture, while another dry tree echoes with it, and the two trees are tilted in one direction.

Through the sloping trunk, we see that the crystal clear lake has rolling shadows of rolling hills and jungle. A woman in a red dress is picking mushrooms from the tree, and two girls around her are picking her up.

The plot is very simple, but you can hear the soft branches from Corio's slender strokes, and the sound of rustling; from the sloping trunk, think of the peasant women in the mountains, how hard life is.

This painting of man and scene is not an idealized landscape that the painter deliberately renders, but through the scenery, it expresses a feeling of inner feeling that is more lyrical than nature.
