Transcript of Landscapes, Van Gogh, Gauguin and others

Landscapes are about land...sometimes with sea, or sky, but they always have land.
Landscapes have land! Land can be far away, or up close, it is even in the middle. Where you see land, you usually see sky too. SCAPE means "view" or picture.
Land that is far away is called the 'background'. See the connection, it is 'ground' that is 'in the back' of the picture?
Land that isn't 'far' or 'near' is in the middle and it is called the ...'middleground' of course!
Land that is in the front is called 'foreground', as in nearest. The part of your head that is in front is also called 'fore'. Now is the perfect time to tap your forehead and say "Ahah, I get the picture!".
In order to illustrate Landscape, I have chosen two of my favorite artists, Vincent Van Gogh and his good friend Paul Gauguin.
Van Gogh and Gauguin were friends in France, they often visited each other and would discuss art and politics late into the Arles evening at this very cafe. The stars seemed brighter 120 years ago when they were young painters.
