Landscape and Western ArtBook - 1999
"Landscape and Western Art explores the myriad ideas and images of the natural world in Western art since the Renaissance. Implying that land is the raw material, and that art is created by turning land into landscape, which then becomes art, author Malcolm Andrews takes the reader on a thematic tour of the issues of landscape as art. The book covers the full spectrum of landscape art, including painting, gardening, panorama, poetry, photography, and art. Artistic issues are investigated in connection with Western cultural movements, and within a full international and historical context." "Covers 500 years of one of the most popular genres in art; provides a comprehensive critical overview of the subject; illustrated with a wide range of different examples of landscape art."--BOOK JACKET.
