For thousands of years, the human race has been hooked by landscape art whatever the medium, although it only became a recognised genre of art in the late 15th century. There’s something special about landscape canvas.

Landscape paintings (or landscape prints) belong to an artistic genre defined by a focus on natural scenery as subject matter. Landscape paintings provide a variety of settings, such as mountain art, forest prints, river wall art, and beach landscape prints. Canvas landscape wall art offers a wide view of the scene and usually place some focus on the sky.
Artists choose landscapes as their subjects for a variety of reasons. In addition to wanting to represent or replicate their obvious beauty, some artists opt to create these depictions to study and explore various aesthetic elements, like light, colour, and texture. Some artists also use scenes of nature as a way to tell a story and illustrate an idea. We offer a huge variety of Mountain landscape canvas which is one of our most popular landscape art canvas purchases.

Landscape canvas prints provide us with an emotional experience that is different to other subject matter. Why is this? And what is it about the landscape that has some kind of almost-otherworldly hold on us? ‘Landscape art’ is the depiction of natural landscape usually with a focus on mountains, trees, rivers, forests, valleys, coastline, and other scenic areas. Often, it does not contain a human element, which is why it is so interesting that it has such an effect on us as the viewer; having said that, there are many depictions that do show buildings, trains, bridges and other evidence of human habitation.

Realistic depictions of the landscape are usually arranged in coherent compositions; however the landscape has also inspired abstract painters, most famously Henri Matisse, Cezanne and, of course, Turner whose work is admittedly not entirely abstract but more avant-garde and expressive. Australian landscape prints are also a specialty of ours and we have a large selection of native tree and vegetation landscapes for you to choose from, including Natures Window, Kalbarri.

Landscape paintings often construe a certain mood or emotion – they are incredible tools for creating atmosphere. For example, when viewing a painting with a sunset, you often feel that warming feeling and a sense of wonder. We have all experienced that moment in reality, which is why we have such a strong emotional connection to landscape art – we can all understand it.

The weather is a huge factor as well; for example, moody atmospheres with a rough sea will create a dark, dramatic and frantic atmosphere. The weather affects our lives daily so it certainly has an intense effect on our mood or emotions. The landscape is a powerful subject matter which can embody a wide spectrum of emotions and landscape art can also be all about capturing a beautiful moment and documenting natural events that others may never get to see – especially when it comes to photography. We offer some fantastic tornado art and ocean storm art on our site also.
We can all access the external environment, which is one of the reasons why it is one of the most accessible and universal forms of art and the fact that it is still exceptionally popular today; for both artists and viewers just shows that landscape as a subject matter will always be relevant.
