Nature Teaching Art. Painted Landscapes in the Low Countries
(Reindert Falkenburg) The Low Countries - 1999, № 7, pp. 25-34
Landscape painting, and especially the realistic rendering of the physical landscape we see around us, is a speciality that has always thrived particularly well in the Low Countries. In this article we get all the classics (Bruegel, Jan van Goyen, Jacob van Ruisdael, Jacob Maris and the Hague School, James Ensor,…), but we also see that this tradition regains its topicality in the work of contemporary artists like Arie Schippers and Luc Tuymans, even in an age when in the real landscape of the Low Countries genuine nature is fast vanishing over the horizon.
