This account of the life and times of Claude Lorrain, a French 17th-century painter, makes accessible the range and variety of his drawings and oil paintings. He worked principally in the Campagna near Rome, which he used as the basis for his haunting and idyllic paintings of classical myths. His work and poetic perception have continuously exerted influence not only on the history of painting but also on the development of European culture. The author is a lecturer in art history with a special interest in Baroque art.
