The Artist out of Doors : From Claude Lorraine to Monet Braine Aliki Tuesday 05 March 2019

While plein-air painting came into its own with the art of the Impressionists, the tradition of making images of landscapes outside is one that can be traced back to the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Indeed, Karel van Mander in 1604 encouraged artists to go to the countryside: “There we will look at many views, all of which will help us to create a landscape…” This lecture explores the historical practice of making landscape paintings out of doors from the late 16th century to Impressionism.
