OIL ON CANVAS, 39 ½ x 53 ¾ inches

This pastoral scene incorporates a number of the classical conventions of ideal, poetic landscapes espoused by the French Baroque painter Claude Lorrain. His landscape formula, including framing trees, expansive atmosphere, and the narrative element of a path leading off into the distance, became a model for the influential eighteenth-century concept of the picturesque and struck a chord with many artists through­out the nineteenth century by offering a means to order and idealize the natural world.
