Claude Lorrain

male / French, Italian
painter, draftsman, print artist
French, Italian
Chamagne 1604/1605
According to the inscription on his tomb, the artist was 82 years old when he died in 1682, which is why the year of birth was kept around 1600 for a long time. Records in Lorraine, however, suggest a later year of birth: 1604 or 1605 (Rand/Griffiths/Terry 2006 and Van Tuyll van Serooskerken/Plomp/Mancini 2011).
Rome 1682-11-23

In this field, you will find references to names of groups or to the artists that made/make up groups. You may also come across references to other artists if there was/is question of collaboration without a joint name. This is the case, for instance, with artists who rendered parts of works by other artists (such as with P.P Rubens and J. Brueghel I).
According to Gerson, Jan Miel would, among other things, have provided paintings by Claude Lorrain with figures. Although a collaboration is often mentioned in old auction catalogues, the figures in Lorrain's paintings cannot be attributed to Miel anywhere.
