OIL PAINTING:  Departure of Ulysses from the Land of the Feaci, 1646

      Perhaps the most beautiful of Lorrain's paintings are those in which he brings in the sea - Departure of Ulysses from the Land of the Feaci, whose effects he was able to study during the journey he made to Naples. The sea, for Claude Lorrain, was a poetic element multiplying light; and he edged it with dream palaces, often motivating his paintings by scenes of embarkation or landing taken from history or religion.
