Claude Gellée, also called Claude Lorrain – The Draughtsman Studying Nature

Claude Lorrain Exhibition, Louvre, Paris, France
Claude Lorrain Exhibition, Louvre, Paris, France

Sketches from life, preparatory drawings, large-scale landscape compositions depicting religious or mythological scenes are all central to the oeuvre of this painter, draughtsman and engraver, known as one of the greatest masters of landscape art.

His poetic vision of the “classic” landscape set the standard for his many emulators, not only in Europe, but also in the United States.

Exhibition organized with Teylers Museum, Haarlem
