Landscapes came into their own in the early 19th century when people fell in love with nature and the great outdoors. In this LoLA box, explore rolling hills with David Hockney, an abstract Tunisian seascape with Paul Klee, and an imaginary colourful landscape with Friedensreich Hundertwasser!
What's the story of Lovely Landscapes?
Part of the skill in creating a landscape painting is deciding which areas to show and which ones to leave out. Artists don’t always depict an entire outdoor scene. Sometimes they show a vast meadow while at other times they paint only the corner of a field. You may choose to show rolling hills in summer in California like David Hockney, or even an imaginary colourful landscape filled with wavy lines and spiral lollipop trees, just like Friedensreich Hundertwasser.
