Masters of Art - Claude Lorrain_Large

Claude Lorrain

Kindle (US version), Kindle eBook, ePub (US version), ePub eBook

Revered by artists and collectors since the seventeenth century, Claude Lorrain was a master of landscape painting, raising the reputation of the art form to new heights. His paintings present idealised views of nature, governed by Classical concepts and fuelled by the inspiration of the Roman Campagna. Claude’s special contribution was the poetic rendering of light, which would particularly influence the Romantic movement and change the course of art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Claude’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
