Landscape with a Lake and a Walled Town by Pietro da Cortona (Pietro Berrettini)

The importance of Cortona's landscapes are in the link that they form between the classicising formality of Annibale and Domenichino and the move towards a spontaneous observation of nature that was to be developed by Claude and Gaspar Dughet in the following decades.
