Landscape after Claude Lorrain (1604/5-82), French painter often regarded as the greatest of all ideal landscape artists, whose depictions of idealised pastoral scenes were immensely popular amongst the European nobility and clergy. Subsequent British landscape painters such as Richard Wilson and JMW Turner were strongly influenced by his work.
