Art Appreciation: Nature in Art- From landscape painting to ecological art

Throughout the years, nature has had different places and meanings in art: from mere background to an independent genre. In this short course, we will study concrete examples from early 17th century Dutch landscape, to contemporary works of art dealing with climate change. This will include works of art as diverse as Chinese hand-scroll paintings, the paintings of flowers, Romantic landscape paintings, the Impressionist works of art, and political installations and performances. We will reflect on the way works of art reflect the way our perception of the natural environment has changed throughout the centuries.
