Landscape in British Painting 1700-1880

Synopsis
Discusses major changes in the appearance, production and function of landscape art. By tracing the transition from topography and view painting, through the aesthetic expectations imposed by theories of the Sublime and the Picturesque, to the establishment of landscape painting as an expressive and pre-eminent genre, the student is introduced to the complexity of landscape production of this period, and to the different methods of analysing landscape art.
