Description:
Universally regarded as the father of French painting, Nicolas Poussin is arguably the greatest of all painters of the French school. Yet Poussin's reputation has been founded more on the intellectual and philosophical qualities of his art than its sheer visual beauty. In this book, Richard Verdi redresses the balance, describing and analyzing Poussin's outstanding gifts as a pictorial storyteller, designer, and colourist - in short, the purely aesthetic (and often abstract) aspects of his art that have inspired so many later painters, from Turner to Cezanne to Picasso.
Poussin, Nicolas, 1594?-1665
