Title: Landscape Artwork

Landscape Artwork
  • Abstract Art

Landscape Art
  • Landscape painting has been a major genre in art
    since the sixteen hundreds. The landscape
    tradition in art didnt take-off overnight,
    however it slowly developed as artists began to
    focus more on the background of their paintings.
    Dutch artists were the first to paint works in
    which the setting the landscape actually
    became the subject of the painting. We have
    compiled a list of some of the most famous
    landscape artists of all time.

Thomas Cole The Last of the Mohicans (1826)
  • American artist Thomas Cole painted four works
    inspired by James Feinmore Coopers famous novel
    The Last of the Mohicans, published in the same
    year. Although the paintings all depict specific
    scenes of interactions with the Native Americans
    from the novel, the real focus of the painting is
    the American wilderness.

Claude Monet, Water Lillies (1914-1926)
  • In his later years, impressionist artist Claude
    Monet painted a series of paintings of his water
    lily pond. Monets water lily paintings all share
    a pastel palette, and are done in his signature
    loose brushstrokes. Over the years, this series
    of works has become one of the most reproduced
    images of landscape art in history.

Paul Cezanne, Mount Saint-Victoire (1894-1900)
  • Mount Sainte-Victoire lied to the east of
    Cézannes home in Aix-en-Provence, France. Over
    the years, he painted the mountain many times, in
    various painting styles. This painting in
    particular has become so famous because it has
    been labeled by some as one of the earliest works
    of cubism.

JMW Turner, The Slave Ship (1840)
  • Turner painted many famous landscape paintings
    over the course of his career, but none so
    evocative or politically-charged as his Slave
    Ship. The painting depicts a slave ship sinking
    in a storm, and the passengers drowning in the
    choppy waters. He painted the work with the
    abolitionist campaign in mind.

Claude Lorrain, The Return of the Odysseus (1644)
  • Claude Lorrain was the most sought after
    landscape painter in seventeenth and eighteenth
    century France. He is famous for the soft haze he
    gives to the background of his idyllic
    landscapes. This painting, like most of his
    works, references Greek mythology and
    incorporates classical Greek architecture.
