Landscape with the Funeral of Phocion

1648: National Museum of Wales, Cardiff

Poussin often portrayed scenes from mythology in idealistic landscapes wherein each element is carefully constructed to enhance the sense of balance. The dark colours on the bottom and the deep landscape here provide a sombre background appropriate to the solemn nature of the death of the hero.
