Clark offers a chronology of the study of Landscape From the symbolic objects of Medieval art, to the emotion of impressionism.As alway, Clark is clear in his thoughts, however he does not make those thoughts clear to us It is only afterwards that you piece it all together Into a system of development, pushed forth by but a few. (((FREE PDF))) ↬ Landscape Into Art ☔ Sir Kenneth Clark possesses a rare ability for conveying artistic enthusiasm to those who might never encounter his learned studies and catalogues In Landscape into Art he effectively outlines the growth of landscape painting as an independent art, from the early use of symbols taken from nature to the canvases of such great painters as Constable and Corot, Turner and Van Gogh, Cezanne and Seurat And today what changes of survival, he asks, has the image of an enclosed garden in an age of slide rules and nuclear power With Me from the early use of symbols taken from nature to the canvases of such great painters as Constable and Corot Il bacio dell'Assunta Turner and Van Gogh I promessi sposi Cezanne and Seurat And today what changes of survival I pilastri della terra he asks Sveti Breg has the image of an enclosed garden in an age of slide rules and nuclear power I was really quite disappointed in this book The text was inspired, verging often almost on the insipid And the prints, of course, were all in black white and so were worthless In earlier portions of the book, I went from reading to using his selections as a guide via internet for thinking about the sequence of his thoughts and then eventually, just used Wikipaintings to go through chronologically the artists he discussed Clark s book itself became irrelevant.I think the problem was tha I was really quite disappointed in this book The text was inspired, verging often almost on the insipid And the prints, of course, were all in black white and so were worthless In earlier portions of the book, I went from reading to using his selections as a guide via internet for thinking about the sequence of his thoughts and then eventually, just used Wikipaintings to go through chronologically the artists he discussed Clark s book itself became irrelevant.I think the problem was that he spent a lot of time talking about landscape in paintings where the landscape was not the primary focus of the work everything up to and prior to Titian s Tempesto falls into this category As such, there was no real handle for analysis He was like a man on a train saying Oh, look A missed opportunity P.S 3 stars in my book means didn t like it Sorry GR, I don t follow guidelines What I have is billed on the cover as the revised edition First published in 1949, a New Edition was published in 1976, issued as a paperback in 1979, and subsequently reprinted I adore landscapes, having never set foot out of a jagged urban or inner suburban setting barely in my life, and so look forward to reading this For me, looking at Poussin or Corot is becoming like a form of prayer You know, it s a bit absurd that GoodReads wants us to all rate the same edition of each book when the edition used can make such a fundamental difference to our experience of the thing. A magisterial and opinionated overview of landscape painting up to the nineteenth century, based upon the author s 1946 undergraduate lectures at the University of Oxford, with each chapter displaying depth of knowledge of both art and English literature It is accessible, but as it is dated 1949, with minor revisions in 1976 , also makes you realise how much might be assumed knowledge for undergraduates at that time, which is now erudite for this reader , making me aware of the loss of a comm A magisterial and opinionated overview of landscape painting up to the nineteenth century, based upon the author s 1946 undergraduate lectures at the University of Oxford, with each chapter displaying depth of knowledge of both art and English literature It is accessible, but as it is dated 1949, with minor revisions in 1976 , also makes you realise how much might be assumed knowledge for undergraduates at that time, which is now erudite for this reader , making me aware of the loss of a common education, or perhaps it has always been such.The first four chapters over half the book set out snapshots from the historical development of landscape painting, which was originally merely the background of religious or figurative painting Chapters five to seven discuss landscape painting in the nineteenth century, and chapter eight is a brief epilogue looking at early twentieth century art.Perhaps too many superlatives, but the works that he applies them to are mainly the famous works one expects And although dated, the introduction by Will Gompertz to the Folio Society edition puts this in its historical context.The Folio Society edition from 2013 if you can obtain it second hand has 147 cross referenced colour illustrations of works discussed in the text, which make it a joy to read It was a well executed look at the subject matter though very Eurocentric His insight and break down was well written The only area I think he may have missed on was the influence the East had on artists, particularly those in the later 19th century as the world began to open up and access became available I m looking forward to reading some of his other works. This book may be better suited for someoneadvanced in their studies of art art history I am a self proclaimed beginner, just starting to explore this genre I was immediately overloaded on names of artists I did not think that I was able to get a grasp on one artist before the author was on to the next one I did definitely appreciate the history of the art that was given and the critiques I like that in the version that I read, the author had made corrections amendments citing new beli This book may be better suited for someoneadvanced in their studies of art art history I am a self proclaimed beginner, just starting to explore this genre I was immediately overloaded on names of artists I did not think that I was able to get a grasp on one artist before the author was on to the next one I did definitely appreciate the history of the art that was given and the critiques I like that in the version that I read, the author had made corrections amendments citing new beliefs and new things learned since the original publishing I think that I may have been able to getout of this book if I would have looked up the translations of all the foreign French phrases Also, I believe some of the pictures cited were missing from the book and not all the citation numbers matched up to the pictures I could have googled all of this, I suppose, but I just got frustrated instead What did people do before google I was looking for acomprehensive, slower paced introduction to landscape art and didn t really find it here There was some supposition that the reader was already familiar with some of the artists and some of the works, hence them not being included in the book The book was written well other than the few problems I ve noted and it was written in a language easy to read I also really appreciated the Epilogue which was the most informative of the whole read This book also exposed me to a new way of thinking about art It did examine itas a science as one discovery led to new ideas and progression in the field I had not viewed art like this previously and thought that it was muchrandom and based on individual expression but the examples cited in this book and the progression of landscape painting does fit well with this method Recommended by Tom Turner author of Garden History Philosophy and Design 2000 BC 2000 AD as one of forty books which he suggests every landscape student should have seen Thanks to the Landscape Information Hub UK Recommended by Tom Turner author of Garden History Philosophy and Design 2000 BC 2000 AD as one of forty books which he suggests every landscape student should have seen Thanks to the Landscape Information Hub UK
