History of landscape paintings
Landscapes & natural beauty have been popular genres for artists since the ancient times. The Greeks and Romans are well known to have painted wall paintings of landscapes and gardenscapes. The fall of the Roman Empire also led to the decline of the tradition of depicting pure landscapes, and the landscape was bound only as a setting for religious and figural scenes. This tradition continued until the 16th century when artists began to look at the landscape as a theme individually. The artistic shift seems to have corresponded to a growing interest in the natural beauty sparked by the Renaissance.
Birth of the Classical Landscape
The 17th century saw the birth of the classical landscape paintings. In a typical classical landscape painting the positioning of objects was done with a lot of care, each tree, rock, or animal was carefully placed to present a harmonious, balanced, and timeless mood. The classical landscape painting was perfected by French artists Nicolas Poussin and Claude Lorrain. Both artists spent most of their careers in Rome drawing inspiration from the Roman countryside. Italy, at this point , was the popular location for several artists, who often traveled there with patrons on the tour. Poussin, who in his early years focused his talent on history painting, came later in life to believe that landscapes could express an equivalent powerful emotions as the human dramas depicted in history paintings. From that time on, he worked to elevate landscape paintings to the next status.
