These small, coloured convex glases were used by landscape painters as visual aids. They are named after the highly infuential French landscape painter Claude Lorraine (1600-1682), who is believed to have devised and used them to help him obtain the particular romanticised qualities he sought in his paintings. They are shown on display at the Science Museum, London.
