Claude Gellée

Born: 1600, France, Lorrain, Chamagne   Died: 1682, Rome

Painter. Known as 'Claude Lorrain'. Around 1613 he left France for Rome where he became an assistant to Agostino Tassi (c.1580-1644). By 1620 he had moved to Naples where he studied under the landscape painter Gottfried Wals (1595-1638). He returned briefly to France between 1625 and 1627 and was apprenticed to Claude Deruet (1588-1660) for one year. Back in Rome he quickly became successful during the 1630s and from 1635, to combat forgeries of his work, he recorded all his original pieces in his 'Liber Veritatis'. Inspired by the Campagna, he painted classical landscapes with biblical and mythological content. These ideal landscapes became a major influence on British landscape painting. He also produced 44 etchings
