Landscape painting is a genre pictural figurative painting. It was in the 19th century that landscape became a dominant genre.
Nature has long been perceived as a divine creation offering rewards. Such an approach does not allow a sufficient distance to achieve the aesthetic value.
With evolution, this gaze changes, the pictorial genre asserts itself, from the realistic landscape to the impressionist landscape. The art of landscape then consists in restoring an image of our living environment in an aesthetic way. The image obtained can tend towards realism, objective or pure subjective creation.
