Paintings "Landscapes"

Landscape painting depicts landscape for its own sake and for this reason belongs to realistic painting. In landscape painting, nature or its details are depicted, as with town scenes or marine, realistic or ideal landscapes. The varied facets of landscape painting range from the melancholy working scenes of the 17th century, the transcendental natural depictions of Caspar David Friedrich, the expressive landscapes of Vincent van Gogh, to the bright, colored, open air paintings of impressionists such as Claude Monet.
