Landscape into Art - Part 2 with Paul Cartwright

This is part two of a course exploring the different ways artists throughout history and across cultures have responded to the theme of landscape. In these sessions, students will explore a range of key themes in landscape art, such as mythical, historical, topographical and realist interpretations of the natural world. Other themes covered will include, the relationship between landscape and politics; landscape as a construct, including garden design and its relationship to painting; the contrast between realism and imagination in landscape art; the picturesque and the sublime. Bringing the landscape in art up to the present day will introduce students to the impact of photography, installation art and Land art.
