Biography of Claude Lorrain
(b. 1600, Chamagne, Fr.--d. Nov. 23, 1682, Rome)
Was often spelled as Claud Lorrain, Claude Lorraine
Influenced: J.M.W. Turner, John Constable
French artist best known for, and one of the greatest masters of, ideal-landscape painting, an art form that seeks to present a view of nature more beautiful and harmonious than nature itself.
Claude artist was born in the small village of Chamagne, Vosges, then part of the Duchy of Lorraine.
He spent most of his life in Italy, and is admired for his achievements in landscape painting. On his travels, Claude briefly stayed in Marseilles, Genoa, and Venice, and had the opportunity to study nature in France, Italy, and Bavaria. The first dated Claude landscape with Cattle and Peasants (Philadelphia Museum of Art) from 1629, already shows well-developed style and technique. In the next few years his reputation was growing steadily, as evidenced by commissions from the French ambassador in Rome (1633) and the King of Spain (1634–35).
|The quality of that beauty is governed by classical concepts, and the Claude art landscape often contains classical ruins and pastoral figures in classical dress. The source of inspiration is the countryside around Rome--the Roman Campagna--a countryside haunted with remains and associations of antiquity. The practitioners of ideal landscape during the 17th century, the key period of its development, were artists of many nationalities congregated in Rome. Later, the form spread to other countries. Artist Claude, whose special contribution was the poetic rendering of light, was particularly influential, not only during his lifetime but, especially in England, from the mid-18th to the mid-19th century.|
|In this matter of the importance of landscape, Claude Lorrain was prescient. Living in a pre-Romantic era, he did not depict those uninhabited panoramas that were to be esteemed in later centuries, such as with Salvatore Rosa. He painted a pastoral world of fields and valleys not distant from castles and towns. Claude Lorrain was described as kind to his pupils and hard-working; keenly observant, but an unlettered man until his death.|
