“Everything urges towards landscape…”

Landscapes in 19th-Century Painting and Drawing

The early 19th century saw the rediscovery of the landscape by many artists. In addition to the notion of the classical ideal landscape, the landscape was seen as a place that sparked a longing in the artist and reflected states of mind; alternatively, it portrayed a supposedly unclouded view of reality.
Based on a selection of 90 known and yet-to-be-rediscovered landscapes from the stores of the Leipzig Museum of Fine Arts, the range of different concepts of art in the 19th century – from classicism and romanticism to realism and outdoor painting, all the way to symbolism – are presented here.
