GREAT ART - Landscape Painting


Landscape art is a term that covers the depiction of natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers, and forests, and especially art where the main subject is a wide view, with its elements arranged into a coherent composition.
Sky is almost always included in the view, and weather is often an element of the composition.
The word landscape is from the Dutch, landschap originally meaning a patch of cultivated ground, and then an image.
The word entered the English language at the start of the 17th century, purely as a term for works of art; it was not used to describe real vistas before 1725.
The majority of the landscapes included in this Gallery are romantic and post-romantic in style.
