Reading Landscape Art


Description

European landscape art emerged in the seventeenth century, exploring aesthetic qualities associated with nature, but also representing social values. English gardens and paintings by such artists as Constable and Turner were signifiers of economic and political change in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, as were artworks in colonial New Zealand.
