Wals was one of the most gifted successors to Adam Elsheimer, the German painter. The young Claude Lorrain studied with Wals in Naples, where Wals stayed for a while during the course of his widespread sojourns in Italy, and it is thought that Lorrain was greatly influenced by him. The subject of this painting is "Flight of the Holy Family into Egypt", but its purpose is to depict a landscape filled with poetic emotion. (Source: The Digital Gallery. 1999-2006)
