"Roman Campagna" Original Engraving by Gaspard Dughet, c. 1645
An original copper plate engraving on laid paper by Italian artist Gaspard Dughet, (also known as Gaspard Poussin), (1615-1675) titled "Roman Campagna", C. 1645. The term "Campagna" means "any place near Rome". Signed in the plate lower left. A wonderful image, impeccable condition considering this work in nearly 400 years old. Sheet size: 9.5" x 9".
Gaspard Dughet was born in Rome, the son of a French pastry-cook and his Italian wife. He has always generally been considered as a French painter, although in fact he never visited France. In around 1635 he became a pupil of Nicolas Poussin, who had married his sister Anne five years earlier. Because of this connection he was widely known as "Gaspard Poussin"
He specialised in painting landscapes of the Roman Campagna becoming, along with his exact contemporary Salvator Rosa, one of the two leading landscape painters of his time. He painted several cycles of frescoes, including one, showing various sites around Rome, at the Colonna Palace. He worked with Pier Francesco Mola, Cozza, and Mattia Preti at the Palazzo Pamphilj in Valmontone. He often collaborated with Guillaume Courtois who painted the staffage in his landscapes. This was the case, for instance, in the works for the Palazzo Pamphilj. There is another fresco cycle by Dughet, though in a bad state of preservation, in San Martino ai Monti.
Gaspard Dughet died in Rome on 27 May 1675.
