Nicolas Poussin left an incredible legacy which inspired many later French painters who took great interest in his techniques and saw him as a key influnce on the development of French art during that period and indeed on many art movements which followed on afterwards. Some notable painters who are believed to have been influenced by his career included Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Auguste-Dominique Ingres and Paul Cezanne.
European art was dominating during the periods from post-Middle Ages up to the 20th century and France and Italy together probably lead the way for much of it, though there were certainly important contributions from others countries such as the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and the UK. Poussin offered an impressive combination of French roots with experience of working in Italy for many years and this helped him to establish a highly impressive style which stood out from most other artists of that time.
Poussin paintings included Rape of the Sabine Women, Eucharist, Helios and Phaeton with Saturn and the Four Seasons, Et in Arcadia ego (Les Bergers d’Arcadie), The Four Seasons: Summer, or Ruth and Boaz, Adoration of the Sheperds and many more.
