Landscape Art

Did you know in the last 50+ years, landscape art does not seem to be produced by contemporary artists who get into major galleries or have exhibitions in the important museums or sell for big sums in the auction houses?

It seems to be a lost art form. It is interesting to note that the painting of landscapes such an enduring form of art across cultures, continents and centuries does not continue to get much notice in the 20th century.

Katherine Tyrell, an artist and author, ponders the question of why landscape art has been downgraded in contemporary art circles in her blog Making a Mark. She poses some valid thoughts on the subject. She will be having this discussion on her new blog when she builds its audience(after 12 days it is now up to 73 subscribers!).

You might think about joining in.
