9780192842336: Landscape and Western Art (Oxford History of Art)

What is landscape? How does it differ from "land?" Does landscape always imply something to be pictured, a scene? When and why did we begin to cherish images of nature? What is "nature?" Is it everything that isn't art, or artifact? By addressing these and many other questions, Landscape and Western Art explores the myriad ideas and images of the natural world in Western art since the Renaissance.

Implying that land is the raw material, and that art is created by turning land into landscape, which then becomes art, author Malcolm Andrews takes the reader on a thematic tour of the fascinating and challenging issues of landscape as art. The books broad sweep covers the full, rich spectrum of landscape art, including painting, gardening, panorama, poetry, photography, and art. Artistic issues are investigated in connection with Western cultural movements, and within a full international and historical context.

Clear explanations and beautiful illustrations convey to the reader the idea of landscape as an experience in which everyone is creatively involved. Landscape and Western Art provides an enlightening and comprehensive critical overview of landscape art.

Review:


"A splendid text ... with images both celebrated and startling, he shows landscape as a contruction, a theatre in which humans act and enjoy seeing themselves act."--Professor Richard Thomson, Edinburgh University


"A very accomplished surveyof a notoriously complex and elusive subject ... nothing--not even words like 'environment' and 'art' is left unquestioned."--Andrew Wilton, Keeper and Senior Research Fellow, Tate Gallery


"Highly intelligent ... it insists that hte making of landscape is inseperable from the history of the moment of its production, but also recognizes the intense personal experiences that motivate it."--Professor John House, Courtauld Institute of Art

Descrizione libro Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2000. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What is landscape? How does it differ from land ? Does landscape always imply something to be pictured, a scene? When and why did we begin to cherish images of nature? What is nature ? Is it everything that isn t art, or artefact? This book explores many fascinating issues raised by the great range of ideas and images of the natural world in Western art since the Renaissance. Using a thematic structure many issues are examined, for instance: landscape as a cultural construct; the relationship between landscape as accessory or backdrop and landscape as the chief subject; landscape as constituted by various practices of framing; the sublime and ideas of indeterminacy; landscape art as picturesque or as exploration of living processes. These issues are raised and explored in connection with Western cultural movements, and within a full international and historical context. Many forms of landscape art are included: painting, gardening, panorama, poetry, photography, and art. The book is designed to both take stock of recent interdisciplinary debates and act as a stimulus to rethinking our assumptions about landscape. Codice libro della libreria AOP9780192842336
