In the visual arts, a cityscape is an artistic representation, such as a painting, drawing, print or photograph, of the physical aspects of a city or urban area. It is the urban equivalent of a landscape.
Any modern or contemporary art lover will recognize that urban landscapes are a large part of the art scene in recent times, from the impressionist views of Paris by Camille Pissarro or Claude Monet to the realistic Madrid of Antonio Lopez, through the photorealistic New York of Richard Estes, or even the abstract landscapes of Willem de Kooning.

From the first century A.D., we have frescos at the Baths of Trajan in Rome depicting a bird’s eye view of an ancient city. In the Middle Ages, cityscapes appeared as a background for portraits and biblical themes. From the 16th up to the 18th century, numerous copperplate prints and etchings were made showing cities from above. The function of these prints was to provide a map-like overview.

By the end of the 19th century, the impressionists focused on the atmosphere and dynamics of everyday life in the city. Suburban and industrial areas, building sites and railway yards also became subjects for cityscapes. During the 20th century, attention became focused on abstract and conceptual art, and thus the production of cityscapes declined, but with a revival of figurative art at the end of the 20th century came a revaluation of the cityscape.
Cityscape painting flourished after World War II, already appearing in the repertory of the abstract expressionist painters, but the most important contribution to cityscape painting in recent times has been made by photorealist and hyperrealist painters. Within the first group, the most important is figure Richard Estes, possibly the most important New York cityscapes painter since George Bellows, whose artistic production spans from the brilliant “​Horn and Hardart Automat​” to the recent “​Broadway Bus Stop, Near Lincoln Center”​ .
