A thorough examination of the little-studied narrative aspects of Claude Lorrain's landscape compositions, this catalogue presents 28 paintings and 53 related drawings executed by the renowned French artist (1600-1682) over the course of his long career in Rome, the atmospheric pastoral compositions and harbor views often incorporating scenes derived from the Bible or from the writings of Ovid, Virgil and other Classical poets. A substantial essay analyzing Claude's interpretations of biblical and literary themes and the significance of the subjects to the artist and his patrons precedes a five-part presentation of the exhibited works that features synopses of the narratives embodied in the paintings and concise critical commentaries.
