Published to accompany an exhibition at the British Museum and the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, this catalogue looks at Claude Lorrain, as a draughtsman, focusing on his style and technique. The majority of the drawings are taken from the collections of the British Museum, with a selection from the lesser-known collection of his work fromhoused in the Ashmoleon Museum. They include Claude's "Liber Veritatis", preparatory drawings and nature studies composed in the Italian countryside. These allow a reappraisal of the range of his drawing styles and offer an opportunity to look again at the role of drawing within his art as a whole.
