Exhibition Claude Lorrain – The Draftsman Studying Nature
from April 21, 2011 to July 18, 2011
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.
