17th Century: The Etchings by Claude Lorrain

Claude Gellée of Lorraine (1600-1682)

Claude Lorrain is one of the most important landscape artists. He was send to Rome at the age of 13 to learn the profession of pastry cook and it was the happy circumstance that he was placed in the household of the painter Agostino Tassi that brought him to the art. His earliest etchings saw light in 1630. He was so successful that from the early 1630's on his work was copied and sold in Rome. This inspired him to his most important work Libro di Verita: a collection of drawings after his paintings containing all the original work he made. This Liber Veritas was engraved by Richard Earlom in the later 17th century and did add to the knowledge of Claude's work.
