Landscape art – a new definition and new look

Keywords: art, art theory, landscape


The aim of this article is to propose a new definition of landscape art. By landscape art we mean all forms of art which refer to any landscape and problematize it, i.e. subject it to artistic analysis, interpretation and intervention, both in a formal and aesthetic, as well as critical sense. Landscape art understood in this way would not be a separate direction or trend in art and would not form a coherent artistic concept. In the article we indicate the current understanding of landscape functioning in the field of art and the reasons why the new definition is useful
