Landscape Painting Now : From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism, Hardback Book

Landscape Painting Now : From Pop Abstraction to New Romanticism Hardback

Edited by Todd Bradway


Whether as a reaction to our technological present or as a manifestation of fears concerning our environmental future, depictions of the natural world in painting have never seemed more pertinent or urgent.

Some of the most ambitious, crucial and intellectually vibrant paintings being created in this century involve the landscape - from a more traditional, perceptual based approach for rendering vistas to a looser, topography-inspired gestural abstraction that blurs the line between form and space, to many other modes in between.

Surprisingly, there has not been an ambitious and wide-reaching publication on the subject - until now.

The result of several years' worth of research, Landscape Painting Now is the first book to explore the very best contemporary landscape painting.

Featuring artists from nearly twenty-five countries born over seven decades, it includes some of the brightest stars of the contemporary art world.

It is introduced by an essay from Barry Schwabsky, who discusses the history of landscape painting, exploring how the genre developed through the 20th century to today, and how it has become increasingly relevant to art now.

He also explores the notion of what is actually called a landscape painting today, and looks to expand beyond commonly held preconceptions concerning the genre.
