"Italian Animated Landscape Attributed To Gaspard Dughet 1615-1675)"
Italian animated landscape attributed to Gaspard DUGHET 1615-1675) Gaspard Dughet, also known as Gaspard Poussin or Le Guaspre, born in Rome on June 15, 1615 and died on May 27, 1675 in the same city, was a French painter of the Baroque era active in Rome, specializing in landscapes of the classical trend. Gaspard Dughet is Nicolas Poussin's brother-in-law. He was the son of the French cook established in Rome who had taken in and cared for Poussin during a serious illness. Upon his recovery in 1630, Poussin married Anne-Marie Dughet, sister of Gaspard. He lived until 1635 in his sister's marital home where he was undoubtedly introduced to painting by Poussin before moving towards the creation of landscapes. He quickly found success. He then made numerous trips to Milan, Perugia, Florence, Naples, and divided his life between Rome, Tivoli and Frascati. His early works, little known, have sometimes been associated with the works of the "Master of the Silver Birch". For other authors, these same works date from Poussin's youth. His work is in some respects similar to that of Salvatore Rosa Very beautiful Italian frame in gilded wood from the 17th century.
