Obwohl die Landschaftsmalerei lange Zeit als Untergenre angesehen wurde, ist sie doch über ihre Vorgänger -- die religiöse und historische Malerei -- hinausgewachsen und hat sich zu einem eigenen style entwickelt. Giorgione in Italien, die Brueghels der Flämischen Schule, Claude Lorrain und Poussain der Französischen Schule und Turner und Constable in England sind nur einige wenige großartige Landschaftsmaler, die die Geschichte der Landschaft und die Kunst der Malerei geprägt haben.

The Renaissance of the Twelfth Century

Despite its age, this ebook remains to be the most efficient piece fo scholarship at the 12th Century.
