By Richard Rand
The book presents some of Claude's most remarkable drawings—including all aspects of his style and
subject matter, from informal outdoor sketches of trees, rivers, and ruins to formal presentation drawings
and elaborate compositional designs for paintings—many of which have never before been reproduced in color.
A detailed and scholarly essay places them within the social and cultural contexts of their time and includes
comparative illustrations of paintings and etchings to situate them within the artist's oeuvre.
