It is especially valuable to see both versions of the scene together, one more instance of the intelligence and thoughtfulness of the selection.
After a negative period in the nineteenth century we find Roger Fry in his 1907 essay still one of drawings of Claude Lorain most perceptive evaluations of Claude's work striving to rehabilitate him with some fairly "tough love. I urge you not only to go the the exhibition, but to go many times, and to delve deeply into the range of Claude's work and methods. 1600 - Rome, 21 or 23 November 1682 Claude Lorrain also Claude Gellee or Le Lorrain Lorraine, c.
This is one example of a general tendency to over-analyze. This is of course a subject quite distinct from the antiquarian contemplation of ruins, but in relation to Claude the association is a fruitful one, since his studies of ruins are more contemplative than scientific, the very opposite of the meticulous studies found in the contemporary Cassiano dal Pozzo album, to which his friend Nicolas Poussin may have contributed.
They both continued to develop their work in subsequent years, and in 1982 H. not only had his first patrons died, but also his younger colleagues and competitors, like Gaspard Dughet and Salvator Rosa, who became almost as ubiquitous a fixture drawings of Claude Lorain the English country house as Claude himself.

That is all we can say. An extra section with a dozen or so works by Claude's predecessors and contemporaries would have been a marvelous addition to an already splendid exhibition.
So far the exhibition has avoided paying much attention to chronology and development, combining works of different periods within one section, and here, too, works of the 1660's are combined with works of his last five years.
You will also see an example of Claude's unique kind of "grid," which he used in his finished compositional studies.
Their pointing gestures, as in the Tomb of Nero later in the exhibition, embody the full experience of the act of vision with all its attendant emotions.
These points are small in themselves, but Claude painted for a clientele who read and loved these authors, and nothing can benefit our understanding of Claude more than an informed appreciation of the culture in which he lived.
Back then Chatsworth was not as accessible as it is today, and the arrival of the Liber, which provided an invaluable framework for chronology, in a public collection created a scholarly revolution.
