ROSA, Salvator
(b. 1615, Arenella, d. 1673, Roma)

Rocky Landscape with a Huntsman and Warriors

c. 1670
Oil on canvas, 142 x 192 cm
Musée du Louvre, Paris

Towards the end of his life Rosa turned to a type of landscape painting that convey a disturbing, sinister atmosphere, a far cry from the ideal landscape of Poussin or Claude Lorrain, which he emulated in his early career.
