Landschaftsmalerei by Emile Michel

By Emile Michel

Obwohl die Landschaftsmalerei lange Zeit als Untergenre angesehen wurde, ist sie doch uber ihre Vorganger -- die religiose und historische Malerei -- hinausgewachsen und hat sich zu einem eigenen style entwickelt. Giorgione in Italien, die Brueghels der Flamischen Schule, Claude Lorrain und Poussain der Franzosischen Schule und Turner und Constable in England sind nur einige wenige gro?artige Landschaftsmaler, die die Geschichte der Landschaft und die Kunst der Malerei gepragt haben. Nachdem sie lange Zeit nur als Hintergrund oder als Zeichenubung gedient hatte, wurde die Natur als eigener Gegenstand betrachtet und als Veranschaulichung einer aufgeklarten und wissenschaftlichen Studie der Welt in die Kunstwerke integriert. Durch standige Veranderungen inspirierte sie die wichtigsten Maler und erlaubte einigen, wie zum Beispiel Turner, die unerbittliche Suche nach blo?em Realismus in bildlicher Darstellung zu uberwinden. Emile Michel zeigt uns in diesem Buch das au?ergewohnliche landscape der Kunst vom 15. Jahrhundert bis heute und wie diese Kunstler die Welt in all ihrer Pracht darstellen.
