Ref: Melot #C65.

Corot and other artists of the Barbizon school were the first, and most prolific, experimenters with cliché-verre, a technique that combines aspects of printmaking and photography. Developed around 1839, this process begins with a glass plate on which an artist either paints or scratches a design on a prepared ground. The glass plate is then treated as a negative and placed on top of light-sensitive paper and exposed to the sun or other bright light.
