Landscape painting is the genre which Baron Hans Heinrich of Thyssen-Bornemisza was always most passionate about collecting. This book spans 500 years of landscape painting in all its diversity: from the wide, atmospheric landscapes of Brueghel to the dramatic nature depictions of Jacob Ruisdael; from Lorrain´s idyllic landscapes and 18th-century paintings heavily influenced by courtly ideals to canvases from the New World by Heade and Church; from the renewed, conscious return to nature by Constable, Courbet and others to colorful, light-infused impressionist paintings all the way to the heightened sensations of expressionist imagery. Outstanding works, created by painters like Brueghel, Ruisdael, Lorrain, Watteau, Canaletto, Constable, van Gogh, Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, Nolde, Kirchner, and Kandinsky, reflect the change in meaning of the term landscape and the development of landscape painting.
