Engraving after a painting by Gaspar Dughet (1615-75). Dughet was the brother-in-law of Nicolas Poussin, who trained him, and whose name he was usually called by during this period. Along with Claude Lorrain, Dughet was one of the landscape painters whose works were best-known to British audiences in the 18th century. His landscapes, disseminated through prints such as this, were highly influential on the nascent English landscape school.
