Landscape Paintings from the National Gallery of Art

landscape-tp

This program traces changing attitudes toward landscape painting from the Renaissance to the 20th century. Landscape painting in the European tradition first served as a vehicle for religious symbolism and, later, as the setting for religion, mythological, literary, and historical subjects. Dutch painters of the 17th century were among the first to treat landscape as a subject in its own right, and the subject became increasingly popular in the 18th and 19th centuries.
