Landscape Paintings

Why artists painted landscapes

Many famous landscape artists were reclusive and stayed in rural areas, and others worked in the cities and would spend their summers by lake houses and vacation homes. These beautiful scenes of nature inspired many artists to create some of the famous landscapes that we love today.
