Baroque   •   Nicolas Poussin @ Wikipedia

Nicholas Poussin (1594-1665) was a French painter of the Baroque. He first studied in Rome the works of antiquity. After initial difficulties, Poussin, after a little public commission - the altarpiece "Martyrdom of Saint Erasmus" for Saint Peter - was able to win over private collectors. In Paris, where he had to return in 1641 at the request of the king, the artist was commissioned to paint the Grande Galerie des Louvre. Poussin, feeling at home, is no longer comfortable with other artists, which is why he returned to Rome after the king's death.

With his works known and important became Poussin through his heroic landscapes. Shaped by the models of antiquity, he created idyllic landscapes based on mythology. Statueshaft the figures are in the antikisierenden robes in southern seeming nature. Especially works like "Et in Arcadia ego" (first version 1629-1630, second version 1650-55) show this kind of representation. In addition to the landscapes Poussin created mainly mythological and biblical scenes. These, too, exhibit the ancient models in their statuesque representation, as in the painting " Death of Germanicus " (1626-1628). His works, which are mainly created for private collectors and connoisseurs, are in their own way outstanding for Baroque painting. © Meisterdrucke
