A peasant's son, Claude Gellée became known as Claude Lorrain, (1604 Champagne, France - 1682 Rome, Italy), was a French painter and draftsman. He had difficulty writing French and Italian and could barely count, but he could explain light's effects like a physicist. Entirely devoted to his art, the kind, guileless Claude became wildly successful despite ruthless competition. The young Claude began his career in Rome by about 1617, where he largely remained until his death. He studied the art of Northern European landscapists working in Italy, trained under Rome's landscape painters, and briefly studied in Naples. By 1633 Claude had found his definitive landscape style and joined Rome's Accademia di San Luca. In life and long after his death, Claude influenced landscape painting and garden design, through his paintings and over 1,300 drawings.
