Claude Lorrain

 1600 c.~1682. A French painter. His real name is Claude Gellée. He worked in Rome. He is well-known for painting ideal landscapes. The major works of his are Seaport with the Embarkation with the Queen of ShebaLandscape with Apollo and Mercury, and others.
 Lorrain employed the precise perspective, painting landscapes. Vernon Lee hates paintings painted with the precise perspective and the knowledge of anatomy. She takes a negative attitude against Masaccio、one of the founders of perspective. She can't feel "genius loci" in landscapes based on scientific precision. Therefore, it seems that she doesn't like Lorrain's landscapes. In contrast, she likes paintings based on artists' impression in the contemporary art.
