Written by William J. Williams, Barbara Moore, et al.
The fundamental connection between humanity and nature is at the very core of landscape's appeal as an artistic subject. Thus it might be argued that landscape painting reveals less about nature than it does about human nature. Presented here are nineteen works of art by artists from Annibale Carracci to Claude Monet to Anselm Kiefer. This full-color illustrated brochure can be used as a self-guided tour that begins in the West Building and ends in the East Building of the National Gallery of Art, or as an introduction to landscape painting. The brochure is made possible in part by a gift from Lee and Juliet Folger/The Folger Fund.
