Christoph Ludwig Agricola

Christoph Ludwig Agricola (1667 - 1719) was a German landscape painter. He was born and died at Regensburg (Ratisbon).

He spent a great part of his life in travel, visiting England, the Netherlands and France, and residing for a considerable period at Naples.

His numerous landscapes, chiefly cabinet pictures, are remarkable for fidelity to nature, and especially for their skilful representation of varied phases of climate. In composition his style shows the influence of Caspar Poussin, while in light and colour he imitates Claude Lorrain. His pictures are to be found in Dresden, Brunswick, Vienna, Florence, Naples and many other towns of both Germany and Italy.
