WALS Goffredo (b. ca. 1600, K_ln, d. ca. 1639, Calabria) Nationality : German

German painter, draughtsman and printmaker, active in Italy. According to early sources, Wals left Cologne at the tender age of fourteen and ventured to Italy. In Naples he found work colouring engravings, while from 1616 or 1617 until the end of November 1618, he worked in the Roman studio of Agostino Tassi. Further information about his career is scarce. However, Filippo Baldinucci tells how Wals's fame as a painter of landscapes and perspectives encouraged Claude Lorrain to study with him in Naples, probably from 1620-22. Claude's time with Wals was instrumental in his development of the idealised Italianate landscape.
