Claude Gellée says the Lorrain. Seaport to the setting Sun. 1639.

Born towards 1602 meadows from Nancy Claude Gellée says the Lorraine one leaves very young person to Italy. Famous landscape designer it carries out the essence of his career in Rome like Nicolas Poussin, city where it dies in 1682. Prolific, it paints nearly 200 tables. It paints an imaginary port here and the principal subject is the setting sun. Many works Lorraine was conceived per pairs. One speaks then about " counterpart or match ". In general the 2 tables are of the same dimension, with the same height of horizon and equal proportions, but the atmospheres or the lights are opposite and different. One of the tables is twilight, the other morning one.

The counterpart of Seaport to the setting sun is the village Festival.
