Landscapes

If we talk about painting necessarily we must appoint the landscapes. This is one of the artistic genres which has remained in force until the present. According to the story, this genre soon consolidated, and was from the 15th century when the landscapes came to become the focus of a large number of painters. Many of the people who are newly initiated in the subject of the painting usually use this genre to perform his works. This since anyone has the image of a landscape and can move on a surface through the paint.

One of the best representatives of this artistic genre was the Dutch Peter Bruegel (the elder) painter. To be more precise we can say that the Dutch painters of the 16th century were the undisputed leaders of this recognised. Moreover the term landscape comes from the Dutch word landschap meaning portion of Earth. It is always important to know the history of the subject being studied. If we refer to the techniques of painting, the evolution of these materials of painting also contributed with its overcrowding.

With the passing of years the oils became paintings of wider dissemination. There is much that can be said about the landscapes especially in the current era. Modern painting has greatly contributed to this genre. The French Gustave Courbet was another great landscape. He gained recognition through the selection of rural landscapes which his followers subsequently retook incorporating expressionist elements. As we can notice the scenery also cover various reasons. The landscapes are outdoor paintings that succeed in creating artists induced by the desire to represent images of nature. The still lifes are also topics very challenged by the painters.
