The Flight into Egypt  1635

by Claude Lorrain

Claude was in his early thirties when he painted this picture. He had long since left his native Lorraine and established himself in Rome as a painter of landscapes, a newly emerging genre. His views of the Roman countryside were admired for their golden light and sensitive rendering of atmospheric effects. [url=http://collection.imamuseum.org/artwork/41255/]Read more...[/...
