Claude Lorrain

French, (1604–1682)
Claude Lorrain was a French painter, draughtsman and etcher of the Baroque era. He spent most of his life in Italy, and is one of the earliest important artists, apart from his contemporaries in Dutch Golden Age painting, to concentrate on landscape painting. His landscapes are usually turned into the more prestigious genre of history paintings by the addition of a few small figures, typically representing a scene from the Bible or classical mythology. He was a prolific creator of drawings in pen and very often monochrome watercolour "wash", usually brown but sometimes grey.
