"Western Landscape Painting" Exhibtion
This event has ended.
"Landscape" generally refers to rural scenes of fields or cultivated land, but landscape paintings also tend to depict other motifs like cities, rivers and coastal areas. Landscape painting emerged as a genre in European painting in the later half of the 16th century as a means of examining how humans view and portray nature. This exhibition features selected works of outstanding caliber from the museum's landscape painting collection.
