The Liber Veritatis [Book of Truth] is an album of drawings Claude Lorrain (1604-1682) created to document his own paintings and combat the already prevalent forgeries of his work. In England in the 1770s, printmaker Earlom reproduced the Liber Veritatis as a series of mezzotints, approximating the quality of light and variegated tones and textures of the master’s drawings. The publication and distribution of the French artist’s designs proved seminal to the British landscape school.
