Turner to Monet: The Triumph of Landscape Painting
Год издания: 2008
This catalogue is published to accompany the National Gallery of Australia's major exhibition, which presents a new look at landscape painting in the 19th century as it transformed from the depiction of known places to explorations of mood and time passing. From the orderly beauty of the artist's garden and portraits of estates, painters portrayed newly explored terrain and then ventured further into the wilderness. They sought out the extremes of nature, elemental and untamable: stormy coasts and mysterious mountains, volcanic eruptions and raging fires. The book reproduces works in this vein by the finest artists of the time - Turner, Constable, Friedrich, Corot, Courbet, Glover, Von Guerard, Church, Streeton, Roberts, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet - gathered from public and private collections in Australia and round the world.
