French Baroque Art
An introduction to French Baroque Art is coming soon!

Baroque Painters
Claude Lorrain | Claude was a master of depicting landscapes, and he excelled at painting images inspired by the beauty of nature. An example of his work is the magnificent Landscape with a Sacrifice to Apollo.

Georges de La Tour | The play of light and shadow in many of Georges de La Tour's paintings recalls the works of Italian artist Caravaggio. These effects can be seen especially in La Tour's images of Mary Magdalene.

Nicolas Poussin | One of Poussin's most memorable masterpieces in his somber painting Et in Arcadia Ego - in this haunting work, the artist reveals his debt to Classical art.
