Download Le Lorrain by Sergei Daniel PDF

By Sergei Daniel

Claude Gellée (Le Lorrain) (Chamagne, 1604 – Rome, 1682) Claude Gellée, surnommé Le Lorrain, ne fut ni un grand homme, ni un esprit noble comme Poussin. Toutefois, on ne peut nier son génie et il fut, à l'instar de Poussin, un inventeur profondément unique dans les limites imposées par l'idéal classique. Il passa aussi presque toute sa vie à Rome bien que son paintings ne fût pas spécifiquement italien, mais bien français. En effet, plus de deux siècles plus tard, tous ceux qui, en France, ressentirent le désir de décrire les beautés de los angeles nature, s'inspirèrent du Lorrain et de ses œuvres, qu'il s'agisse de Joseph Vernet au XVIIIe siècle ou de Corot au XIXe. En dehors de France, ce fut l. a. même selected : d'ailleurs, Le Lorrain ne fut nulle half plus admiré qu'en Angleterre. Il reste une half de mystère dans los angeles vocation de cet humble paysan presque illettré. En effet, ses connaissances en français et en italien étaient rudimentaires, et il utilisait, pour faire ses annotations au bas de ses dessins, un étrange sabir franco-italien. Ce mystère est en quelque sorte emblématique de l. a. devise «le mystère dans l. a. lumière », qui allait marquer ses tableaux. Qu'est-ce qui l'attira à Rome et l'y retint ? N'aurait-il pas pu produire ses chefs-d'œuvre à Nancy, Paris ou ailleurs ? Quoiqu'il en soit, c'est dans ses paysages qu'il réunit beauté, poésie et authenticité. Il réalisa parfois des dessins d'après nature tellement exceptionnels que plusieurs d'entre eux ont été attribués à Poussin. Mais c'est dans ses peintures que l'imagination prédomine, et l'on peut même dire qu'elle s'imposa de plus en plus, tandis que Le Lorrain prenait toute l. a. mesure de son génie. Sans recourir à l. a. raison, sans rien perdre de sa poésie instinctive, il comprit en écoutant Poussin et en le regardant faire, qu'une forme d'académisme aurait pu être un atout pour ses propres visions et rêveries.
