How captivating Landscape contemporary art paintings came into origin?

The term "Landscape" coined from the Dutch word "landschap," which actually meant land, scenery, sight, swath of land, etc. The origin of landscape art dates back to the era of Greeks and Romans, when the artists used to sketch beautiful sceneries on their walls. Right after the fall of the Roman Empire, the convention of picturesque landscapes also declined and remained up to 16th century.

The real meaning of the terminology "Landscape" came forth during early 1500s and since then typically exemplified as "the form of art that elucidate panoramic view clearly." As per the research and survey conducted by archeologists, it has been revealed that The Netherlands was among the first places where landscape Indian art gained immense popularity among the populace. Conversely, if we go through past records then we will find that in the west, this concept grew relatively very slowly. The whole concept of nature or our mother earth was traditionally observed as incorporation of remote or inaccessible objects long before it was admired as scene or milieu. On the other hand, in the east, original contemporary landscape art reached an unexpected level of brilliance, say as early as in the 18th century.

In today time, original contemporary Indian landscape art can be considered as a very popular subject in the field of art. The prime focus of this form of artwork is on forests, trees, rivers, valley, etc. Most of the landscape art paintings are sketched with the usage of oil paintings, watercolors and pastels etc. which give more appeal and pragmatism to the art.

In the end, would like to conclude by saying that this form of original contemporary Indian art has undergone various changes and awe-inspired the general audience remarkably since its origin.
