Laird, Mark (1999). The flowering of the landscape garden: English pleasure grounds, 1720-1800 . University of Pennsylvania Press. ISBN 9780812234572 . Retrieved March 16, 2012. ISBN 081223457X The British landscape has inspired artists for centuries, with some of the nation’s greatest painters making their name with portrayals of rurality. In the 18th and 19th centuries, landscape became the preeminent genre of British painting as artists such as Richard Wilson, Thomas Gainsborough, JMW Turner and John Constable made it their own. Though new concerns and approaches emerged in the 20th century, landscape has proven to be an inexhaustible subject that continues to hold artists in thrall. This summer, the Royal West of England Academy (RWA)presents ‘ Earth: Digging Deep in British Art 1781-2022’, a retelling of the landscape story that moves away from familiar accounts to focus on how artists past and present have been captivated by the materiality of the Earth itself, from its diverse topography and rich geological resources to the wealth of agriculture and horticulture that its soil sustains, to the increasing damage inflicted on it by human activity. The remarkable range of artistic responses are as diverse as the landscape itself. Shore continues to be one of the most inspirational landscape photographers to this day. His work has set the standard for large format photography. Simon Roberts is a renowned British landscape photographer who has made his way into the art world. He is well known for his large-format, tableaux-like photographs of British settings. Roberts is now a Leica instructor for landscape photography.

The novelty and exoticism of Chinese art and architecture in Europe led in 1738 to the construction of the first Chinese-style building in an English garden, in the garden of Stowe House, at a time when chinoiserie was popular in most forms of the decorative arts across Europe. The style became even more popular thanks to William Chambers (1723–1796), who lived in China from 1745 to 1747, and wrote a book, Designs of Chinese Buildings, Furniture, Dresses, Machines, and Utensils. To which is annexed, a Description of their Temples, Houses, Gardens, &c. published in 1757. In 1761 he built the Great Pagoda, a Chinese house and garden in Kew, London, as part of Kew Gardens, a park with gardens and architecture symbolizing all parts of the world and all architectural styles. Thereafter Chinese pagodas began to appear in other English gardens, then in France and elsewhere on the continent. French observers coined the term Jardin Anglo-Chinois (Anglo-Chinese garden) for this style of garden.

Humphry Repton [ edit ] View of Wentworth Woodhouse, South Yorkshire by Humphry Repton, before proposed landscaping View of Wentworth Woodhouse, South Yorkshire after proposed landscaping, with 'flap' opened to show new lake and bridge Doehler is a photographer from Canada who has been working with a camera since he was 15 years old. Growing up in the British Columbian landscape has profoundly affected his work. He now creates still photographs that are aptly named the Still series. His work takes a minimalist approach to landscape photography.

With an extensive career based around photographing the landscape, Waite has earned his spot on this list. His unique eye brings a new approach to landscape photography that sets him apart from the rest. Thomas Heaton is a British photographer who is very well-traveled. His method of making simple forms out of landscapes sets him apart from others. This can almost be seen as oversimplifying the landscape, but I think it is done well.

From the 1200s onwards, however, increasing enclosure by regional landowners led to the permanent enclosure of private land and a decline in common land. This process peaked in the 18th and 19th centuries and led to the further spread of walls, fences or hedges and contributed significantly to the patchwork appearance of the landscape that we see today - extensive areas of hedged or fenced fields with small, isolated copses or patches of woodland. A lot of his photography depends on the viewer’s contextual knowledge. Whatever is outside of the frame is almost as important as what is in it. This style of landscape photography is essential. It shows a reflection of another place and time. English garden" redirects here. For the public park in Munich, Germany, see Englischer Garten.

There is nothing particularly new about either the theme or the participants. The birth of the Georgian landscape in art, literature and gardening has been minutely examined down the years. This exhibition's three big names are all familiar; indeed, after Turner and Claude at the National Gallery and Turner, Monet and Twombly at Tate Liverpool, this is the third show this year to present Turner in company with other artists – it's as if he is no longer safe to be let out on his own. Nor was the Royal Academy always so keen on its headline acts. While Turner, from child prodigy until his death, was an academician through and through, both Gainsborough and Constable had fractious relationships with the institution. The latter once had to sit silently as a member of the RA rejected one of his paintings because it was "a nasty green thing". He was elected a full academician only aged 53 and even then by just one vote.Through her post-processing techniques, she comes up with surreal scenes. These scenes portray landscapes and how they appear when we idealize them in our heads. Spring flowers and birdsong render woodland full of colour and noise making walking in woodland during spring a delightful experience. On the woodland floor look out for colourful bluebells and other delicate flower species attuned to the dappled light filtering down through the canopy, and flitting between them a range of indigenous butterflies. At dusk you might bump into a Badger emerging from its sett, or see deer of various species wandering and foraging. There is no surprise that she is everywhere, as her work is truly ubiquitous. She photographs anything that finds itself in the landscape, from wildlife to derelict machines. From Chapter 3: "...Theodore at length determined to repair to the forest that Matilda had pointed out to him. Arriving there, he sought the gloomiest shades, as best suited to the pleasing melancholy that reigned in his mind. In this mood he roved insensibly to the caves which had formerly served as a retreat to hermits, and were now reported round the country to be haunted by evil spirits. He recollected to have heard this tradition; and being of a brave and adventurous disposition, he willingly indulged his curiosity in exploring the secret recesses of this labyrinth. He had not penetrated far before he thought he heard the steps of some person who seemed to retreat before him." The landscape and infrastructure make the country particularly suitable for walkers, ramblers and hikers, allowing them to enjoy the countryside up close. For hikers and mountaineers the heights of the peaks seem unimposing - after all the highest mountain, Ben Nevis, rises only to 1,345 meters - yet the mixed montane landscape, combined with the British climate, provides ample opportunities for a challenge amid dramatic scenery. Ben Nevis is the highest peak in the British Isles History
