He too spent so much of his lifestyles in Rome although the paintings he created was once now not particularly Italian, yet French. For greater than centuries afterwards every body in France who felt referred to as upon to depict the beauties of nature might ponder Lorrain and research his works, no matter if it's Joseph Vernet within the eighteenth century or Corot within the 19th. open air France it used to be an identical; Lorrain used to be nowhere extra well-liked than in England. there's a component of poser within the vocation of this humble and virtually illiterate peasant whose wisdom of French and Italian was once both negative, and who used to inscribe on his drawings notes in an odd damaged Franco-Italian. This secret is ultimately symbolic of that with which he imbued his photographs, le mystère dans l. a. lumière. This admirable landscapist drew from inside of himself the best variety of outstanding images, during which all is attractiveness, poetry and fact.
