Landscapes through painting
Landscape painting can be found in all periods and on all continents. The form it takes on varies from culture to culture. This figurative pictorial genre developed in the West especially during the Renaissance. The first painting recognised as such is “The Tempest” by the Venetian painter Giorgione.
Landscape painting developed strongly in the 17th century with the rise of Protestantism, which banned images. The artist Vermeer worked on this theme through topography as with his painting “View of Delft”. Dutch artists tried to represent every detail of the world around them. Sketches were made before starting a canvas in the studio. In France, this genre came to be recognised as a secondary genre by the Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture. The great representatives of this period are Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorrain with their idealized landscapes. In the 18th century, the stars of Canaletto delighted the travellers of the Grand Tour.
Great names in painting created landscapes
In the 19th century, landscapes were to take off through various artistic movements. Some foreign artists made it their speciality, such as Constable, Turner and Friedrich. In France, the Barbizon School founded by Corot and Rousseau specialised in realistic landscapes, which inspired the Impressionists in the second half of the century. Landscapes by Monet, Renoir and Sisley are sought after by collectors. With the advent of photography, artists will allow themselves more fantasy and move away from reality. The artist was able to express their emotions and impressions of the world around them or draw scenes from their imagination to create abstract works.
It should be noted that landscape painting became more and more subjective in the 20th century through the Fauvists and the Surrealists.
