Nicknamed Rome "Le Lorrain" because of its origin, painter, draftsman and etcher talent has made the eternal city his adopted country from 1627 until his death in 1682.

His approach is both sensitive and idealized nature was to dominate the whole European landscape design until the end of the eighteenth century, and even beyond if one remembers the admiration felt for her Turner.
