The National Gallery Pocket Guides series, beautifully illustrated from one of the greatest collections of Old Master paintings in the world, introduces central themes in the history of Western art.

This book shows how artists in past centuries translated outdoor space and light into paint and how landscape imagery evolved from mere ornament into a visual metaphor of the human condition. The story is told from its beginnings in Roman mural decoration, through the Renaissance transformation of landscape into an ambitious vehicle for feelings and ideas, to the Impressionist "revolution" and beyond. The continuing relevance of art to our view of the world and our place in it is demonstrated through a practical discussion of the optics of real and painted landscape.
