[Perspectives] Something else

“Landtskip is a Dutch word, & it is much as wee shoulde say in English landship, or expressing of the land by hills, woodes, Castles, seas, valleys, ruines, hanging rocks, Citties, Townes &c. …Seldome is it drawne by it selfe, but in respect & for the sake of some thing els”. Early modern artist and writer Henry Peacham’s description in The Art of Drawing (1607) marked the arrival of the landscape as a concept in British art. His words encapsulate both enthusiasm for the possibilities of the form—the abundance of subjects and their inherent drama—and ambiguity as to its purpose.
