9780821203958: Landscape Painting of the 19th Century

55 color, 281 black and white illustrations. [From front jacket flap] From Constable's fresh look at nature to the climactic studies of Cezanne, the 19th century was a great age of landscape painting. This beautiful book surveys the century's remarkable range of landscape expression in the works of some 150 artists, arranged and illustrated by their national schools. The broad scope of Landscape Painting of the 19th Century is especially valuable. the United States and the major nations of Europe are here, but Russia, Scandinavia, the Low countries and others are also represented, by artists of merit whose works are too rarely seen in juxtaposition with the better-known landscapes of France and England. Illustrations for each section are accompanied by selections from that country's literature, further illuminating the spirit of the time in its attitude towards landscape. The noted Italian art critic Marco Valsecchi provides background for this rich offering in his introduction, in which he traces the development of the art of landscape, going back to Mantegna and Bellini, and reviews in detail the 19th century, its movements and the contributions of individual painters. Completing the documentation is a biographical section in which the author sketches the careers of all the artists reproduced
