In the late 1640s and early 1650s, in ~ the elevation of his artistic maturity, Nicolas Poussin rotate from historical narrative to landscape painting. Landscape v a Calm go not illustrate a story however rather evokes a mood. The ordered composition and clear, gold light add to A Calm"s utter tranquility, if glowing, gem-like colors and also fluid repaint strokes enliven this scene of benevolent nature. Poussin"s sketching projects in the roman inn countryside with his friend and also fellow landscape painter Claude Lorrain account, in part, because that its fresh observation of cloud-scattered sky and also grazing goats.Poussin painted a pendant to this painting, Landscape v a Storm,now in a museum in Rouen. Together their difference weather impacts embody nature"s an altering and unpredictable relationship with man. Poussin painted these functions for the Parisian merchant Jean Pointel, a friend and also a great collector of his landscape paintings.Art + principles Podcast: T. J. Clark on Poussin
