Taster: Art and the Landscape - with David Brindley

Ref: C3533471

Some of our best-loved paintings are landscapes - the idyllic country scenes of Constable, the atmospheric creations of Turner and the delightful Dutch and Flemish canals and windmills. This course will trace the development of landscape art from early Northern Renaissance backgrounds via picturesque and Impressionist interpretations to recent landscape artists such as Peter Lanyon. We will also look at the influence on European landscapes from Chinese and Japanese artists and from aboriginal art.
