Arrival of Cleopatra in Tara - Claude Lorren. 117x148

The canvas of the French landscape painter Claude Lorren (1600-1682) is dedicated to the events of distant history. egyptian Queen Cleopatra sailed to the city of Tarsus in order to seduce the beauty of the Roman emperor Mark Anthony and subordinate him to his power. However, the artist’s attention is not focused on the love affairs associated with Cleopatra’s political game, but on the seascape with the golden blinding sun, ships moored off the coast and magnificent architectural buildings. The figures of people are almost staffa, Lorren needs them to revive this beautiful view.

The master’s landscapes are informative, they represent mythological or historical events unfolding against the backdrop of beautiful landscapes. However, the plot is always secondary and serves only as a pretext for writing the landscape and a semantic context that guides the viewer in the process of getting to know the canvas.

Lorren was at the forefront of classicism in Western European painting. One of the first in the world of art, he addressed the problem of transmitting a light-air environment. The master watched the lighting for a long time, fixing the discoveries on the palette and transferring them subsequently to the paintings. This is the secret of truly magical light poured on his canvases.
