What is landscape drawing as a type of drawing?

The landscape is one of the main genres of painting. It focuses on nature in all its diversity, wild and cultivated, urban and rural views. People, animals and cars are often present in landscape art, but they play a secondary role.

The first landscapes appear in ancient art but do not become an independent genre in Europe until the Renaissance. But in China, from the beginning of our era, from an ancient nature cult, painting emerged in the “mountain – water” genre, later the “flowers and birds” genre was formed.

During the Renaissance, landscape painting became more and more realistic, for example, the landscape behind Leonardo’s “Gioconde” is not an imaginary nature, but a concrete corner of Italy. It was not until the end of the 18th century, however, and particularly in the following 19th century, that artists came to depict nature from life – there appeared plein air painting, plein air painting. Impressionism, born in the 1860s, gave such a powerful impetus to the landscape genre that its effects are still felt today, although in the 20th century landscape again moved away from realism and survived many many stylistic experiments: post-impressionism, cubism, futurism, abstractionism…

The names of the great landscape painters are still today a reference for lovers of the genre. Messina, Giorgione, Bellini, Tintoretto, Sustris and other representatives of the Venetian school of painting of the 15th and 16th centuries created splendid examples of idealized landscape paintings. In the 17th century, the Dutch landscape emerged as a line of its own – those flat landscapes with windmills and thatched cottages are always beautiful, aren’t they?

At the beginning of the 19th century, landscape painters in England – Constable, Turner, Crome, Bonington and in France – Millet, Corot worked extensively on the technique of realistic landscape painting. Will follow the impressionists Manet, Monet, Renoir, Pissarro and Sisley who will revolutionize the representation of nature, filling the landscapes with sun, movement and life! Let us also remember the great post-impressionist Cézanne, who saw geometric structures in nature and laid the foundations of the cubist and abstract landscape. These tendencies were developed in the 20th century by Kazimir Malevich, Georgia O’Keeffe, Richard Diebenkorn and others.
