About this Unit
Landscape as a subject has been one of the major pre-occupations of artists throughout time. This unit examines the Western artist's perception of the natural environment and humankind's changing relationship to it in both two and three dimensional forms. The various theoretical and pictorial constructs governing the ways in which this has been exposed are explored as well as the many ways landscape has been used metaphorically, politically and philosophically.
