Landscape Art

Landscape Art

A landscape artwork, whether a painting or drawing, centres on natural scenery like mountains, forests, trees, rivers, and valleys.

Landscape painting gained prominence in the late 18th century during the Romantic era. It often retained religious significance and evolved into a means of self-expression, conveying the painter's emotions and deep appreciation for nature.
