What is Landscape?
Landscape is defined as all the visible features of an area of countryside or land, often considered in terms of their aesthetic appeal.
Landscapes are works of art that feature scenes of nature
Cityscapes, Seascapes, Waterscapes
Landscape format: width is greater than height

Where did it begin?
Roots in Greek and Roman times: murals painted on the walls
Landscape gained popularity in the Renaissance (14th, 15th, and 16th cent.)
"Classical" vision
Used for religious scenes and portraits
18th century
Grand tour: souvenirs (capricci and pictures of landscape artworks)
France and Britain centres of landscape
'Fête Galante': depicted pastoral landscapes with figures enjoying picnics and walks in the countryside
19th century
Photography: freedom to interpret landscape
Led to a shift in painting
Spontaneous pictures: Courbet and Boudin
Led to impressionism
Began in France
Named after critic's insult of Claude Monet's painting: "impression"
Father of impressionist movement
Thick brushstrokes and optical mixing: placing primary colours next to each other
Undefined/fuzzy forms:used changes in colour
Basically to capture the moment
Artists started to develop their own styles and removed limitations: used geometric forms to make forms expressive, unnatural colors

3 types of landscape art
Representational: more realistic and the most common

Abstract: most unusual of the three but gives emphasis to only one part of a scene and sometimes confuses the audience.
