"INTERPRETING THE DARTMOUTH CLAUDE AND THE ORIGINS OF THE LIBER VERITATIS"
A lecture given by Hilliard Goldfarb, Associate Chief Curator, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, and former Curator of European Art at the Hood Museum of Art, 1985 to 1990, on February 25, 2009, in Arthur M. Loew Auditorium at the Hood Museum of Art.
Claude (1600-1682), known as Le Lorrain after the duchy in which he was born, greatly influenced landscape painting during his lifetime and well into the nineteenth century through his paintings and over thirteen hundred drawings. The Hood's picture by this artist produces its own visual poetry, reflecting a taste for pastoral subject matter that permeated the period.
