Fourth Century

Landscape painting was established in the East in the fourth century. Here in the West it only became an independent genre after the Renaissance. The Dutch Golden Age was one of the first periods that produced landscape masterpieces. Jacob van Ruisdael is considered by many people to be one of the most important artists of the Dutch Golden Age when it comes to landscape painting.

His masterpiece is called View of Haarlem with Bleaching Fields, and it was painted in 1675.


As you might have already imagined, the Americans weren’t to be outdone. Thomas Cole was considered one of the founders of a movement that came to be known as The Hudson River School. Cole lived from February 1801 until February 11, 1848.

One of the little known facts about Van Gogh is he created over 2000 pieces of artwork in just over 10 years.
