Claude Lorrain


by Sabine CottéBraziller, $7.95. A particularly attractive item in The Great Draughtsmen series, a veritable encyclopedia of types of trees and ways to draw them (pen and ink, brush and ink, pencil, chalk, tinted wash, tinted paper— Claude used them all, singly and in inventive combination). The text is short but interesting for its examination of the artist’s methods of composition. Translated by Helen Sebba.
