Ideal Landscape: Annibale Carracci, Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorrain
Stockholm University, Faculty of Humanities, Department of the History of Art.
1990 (English)Book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The book first discusses the emergence of the genre of landscape painting, its essential principles and its position in the theoretical structure of classicism. The main part of the analysis concerns an interpretation of the paintings through the "filters" (contexts) of drama, rhetoric, utopianism and metaphysics. The painted landscapes contain elements of freedom and existential speculation, thus providing a subjective and subversive stance connecting to naturalistic solutions to problems of metaphysics.
