Download E-books Landschaftsmalerei (German Edition) PDF

Obwohl die Landschaftsmalerei lange Zeit als Untergenre angesehen wurde, ist sie doch über ihre Vorgänger – die religiöse
und historische Malerei – hinausgewachsen und hat sich zu einem eigenen style entwickelt. Giorgione in Italien, die
Brueghels der Flämischen Schule, Claude Lorrain und Poussain der Französischen Schule und Turner und Constable in
England sind nur einige wenige großartige Landschaftsmaler, die die Geschichte der Landschaft und die Kunst der Malerei
geprägt haben.
Nachdem sie lange Zeit nur als Hintergrund oder als Zeichenübung gedient hatte, wurde die Natur als eigener
Gegenstand betrachtet und als Veranschaulichung einer aufgeklärten und wissenschaftlichen Studie der Welt in die
Kunstwerke integriert. Durch ständige Veränderungen inspirierte sie die wichtigsten Maler und erlaubte einigen, wie zum
Beispiel Turner, die unerbittliche Suche nach bloßem Realismus in bildlicher Darstellung zu überwinden.
Émile Michel zeigt uns in diesem Buch das außergewöhnliche landscape der Kunst vom 15. Jahrhundert bis heute und
wie diese Künstler die Welt in all ihrer Pracht darstellen.
