The origin of landscape art follows back to Greeks and Romans who painted scenery on their walls. After the fall of the Roman Empire, this tradition of scenic landscapes was ignored and abandoned until the 16th century. But after the 17th century, revolution stepped in and things started to change. Rembrandt, Rubens, Jacob Van Ruisdael and Nicolas Poussin were counted amongst greatest contributors to this ultimate art form.
Presently, landscape art is a very popular subject as it is equally capable of conveying strong and heartfelt feelings. It refers to an artwork whose primary focus revolves around forests, trees, rivers, valley, etc. Landscape paintings’ canvases will take you into the world of blooming flowers, the twilight of the horizon and butterflies.
