landscape art

since its my favourite and an extra branch of art i thought a thread would be good for.

I got influenced by the dutch landscape artists since i was a little kid. A print of Jacob van Ruisdaels "The Windmill at Wijk bij Duurstede" was hanging in my grandpas house and i always loved it.

Great guys those Dutch landscapists.

Perhaps the greatest of them were Rembrandt whose slight sketches of the countryside were enough to feast the eye


Rembrandt Harmensz. van Rijn (Dutch, 1606–1669)
Cottage among Trees, 1648–50; pen and brown ink, brush and brown wash, on paper washed with brown; 6 3/4 x 10 7/8 in. (17.1 x 27.6 cm);
vertical strip 6 3/4 x 1 1/4 in. (17.2 x 3.2 cm) added by artist to the sheet at right


Then there's Hobbema, a pupil of Jacob van Ruisdaels -


Meindart Hobbema (Dutch, 1638-1709)
A View On the High Road, 1665; oil on canvas


Van Ruisdaels and his followers were one of the first to paint directly from nature; carrying heavy easels and colour sets into the woods. That trend somehow faded away in the 18th Century.

In the early 19th Century, German Romantics took up outdoor painting again and the style readily spread to England ...

One of the greats, John Constable's Haywain


John Constable (British, 1776 - 1837), The Hay Wain, 1821; oil on canvas.

By the mid 1850's, the French had taken up painting "en plein air," crediting their craft to the 17th Century Dutch.

Here are some paintings from my favourite artist, Theodore Rousseau (not to be confused with Henri Rousseau!)


The Edge of the Woods at Monts-Girard, 1854,
Pierre-Étienne-Théodore Rousseau (French, 1812–1867)



A River Landscape (undated)
Pierre-Étienne-Théodore Rousseau (French, 1812–1867)



The Forest in Winter at Sunset, 1845–67
Pierre-Étienne-Théodore Rousseau (French, 1812–1867)

Sampdoria, i like his romantic style. and that i know some of the landscapes. the first pic, for exaple shows the bizarre art of nature at the chalk coast of Ruegen. I was there and it looked almost exactly like that. Loove the "Morning", the "Two Men Contemplating the Moon", "Solitary Tree" and the ruin-paintings for its romantic flair.

the last one "Eismeer" (Sea Ice) is really bizarre. youd think that goes into expressionism, you wouldnt think its by him. But ive seen such a scenery in reality and the nature is that bizarre.

Thanks for the images, LaBlanca

The German Romantics [from which Caspar David Friedrich was the most well known] spearheaded the pan European Romantic movement in art. [One can also argue that these images inspired the British Romantic poets.] The art work of Turner, Constable in England; Gericault, Delacroix in France and even the Symbolists such as Redon in latter years owed everything to the German Romantics :thmbup:

I especially like Eismeer, for personal reasons.

Here's Gustave Courbet's tongue-in-cheek landscape which features three high society women giving money to a peasant girl while their pedigree puppy stares daggers at malnourished cattle.
